Beirut Marathon

Today was the annual Beirut Marathon. I was supposed to run the 10 K, but forgot to sign up. Yep. As the non-participation greatly impaired my chances to win, I figured I might as well not run at all. The weather was pretty miserable too. Nevertheless, it seems some 30,000 people participated. My son ran too, and we went to cheer him along
It seems the Prime Minister and the president also ran the 10K, but I saw neither one of them. The Ethiopians won both the men and the women’s title.
