The 37th Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon, Half-Marathon & 10k took over downtown Cleveland yesterday on a glorious spring morning ideal for running. Here are some photos from the announce platform at the finish line on Lakeside Avenue where some 20,000 runners came blasting by. Kenyans Philip Lagat and Sarah Kiptoo won the marathon titles. Lagat ran a near 3:00 PR in 2:12::39 to add the marathon to his 2010 Rite Aid Cleveland 10k win, while Kiptoo defended her 2013 marathon title in 2:34:58. Fellow Kenyans Julius Koskei (29:06) and Lilian Mariita (33:42) earned the 10K titles.

I’m Stella Balzli 2280 (pictured above) if you really knew my Cleveland Marathon Experience you would get a great laugh! I missed the sign At the split and finished the Halfers nearly
To their finish before I realized what I had done! So
I did what any runner would do and I turned around and ran back to the 9.0 mile mark then continued to the 26 and finished the Full Marathon (technically I ran about 34 miles)! I did this because I completed pittsburgh Marathon 2 weeks before and I needed to complete a second marathon within 16 days to become a Bronze Level Marathon Maniac! Hahahaha!
You certainly captured the joy. Thank you.
