Neighbors, waiting for the runners The LA Marathon ran right through our little neighborhood of Wilshire Vista in Mid-City West yesterday. Some years they change the route. Sometimes the runners cut up Hauser Blvd. This year they ran east on Pico Blvd. and north on Curson Avenue. We're usually well-prepared for the race. We know that we won't be able to leave our area until after noon or 1pm. This year, however, it was very well-organized and there were exit routes along side streets.The weather was cool...good for running We woke up early after hearing the news helicopters overhead. We switched on NBC and saw that the men's team stand-outs were almost to our area. Larry jumped up, dressed and grabbed his camera. I didn't jump. I sauntered out about an hour later, snapped some shots, talked to some neighbors and then went back home for breakfast.

The kids from Honda were great!
Employees from Honda (corporate sponsor of the event) handed out water to the runners and cheered them on. There was lots of applause for the many runners. All in all, it seemed to be well-run and well-attended event. Congratulations to all the participants!
