Mapoma 2011

What a beautiful spring day it was for the 2011 Madrid Marathon.  


A perfect day for running through the streets of Madrid; specifically Plaza de Principe Pio:






Winner in dark blue, Kenyan athlete, Moses Arusei, who ran the 42k race in 2 hrs, 10 min and 58 seconds. 


I was observing the race at the 25k (15.5 miles) point, at which time this group accomplished in 1 hour and 15 min!


I am inspired by these runners who travel and compete all over the world.  Who's ready to compete in a local 5k?  


I will be back in New York in June.  Please email me at getFITwithFITZ@gmail.com if you would like to participate on the Aura Fitness team for any or all of the following three races:
