The big day is almost here... When friends cross the finish line, shaming you for still being in bed after noon.
It's the NYC Marathon, and whether you're in the race, watching from the sidelines or avoiding the entire athletic event altogether, you want to know about it.
The 26.2 mile race begins around 9A in Staten Island, then continues in waves through Brooklyn, up to Long Island City, across the Queensboro bridge, up First Ave to the Bronx and back down Fifth Ave to the finish line at Central Park.
