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 if you would like to participate on the Aura Fitness team for any or all of the following three races:
