One of the great things about our current apartment’s view is that there are a lot of events that happen on Liberty Ave. I particularly had a blast looking out on the Pittsburgh Marathon earlier this year.
Our last apartment – at the Penn Garrison in downtown – was on the “mezzanine” level in the building which made it easy to interact with activity on Penn Ave. We saw the debut of the Pittsburgh Party Pedaler and one of the Pittsburgh Underwear Rides.
Here is a compilation of some of the various Pittsburgh marathon pictures and videos I was able to take this year:
Here is shaky video (I was so nervous about dropping my phone) but it’s cool nonetheless…
Here are a few pictures from the GNC Liberty Mile
Today, we woke up to the PA system for the EQT 10 Mile marathon. I wanted to take pictures from the apartment, but due to personal reasons I took a brief walk to see the end. I loved how they cheered on the final few marathoners. Here is my best picture from street level:
It’s awesome that the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Marathon, Inc. supports the runners (I started training to run before my appendectomy) and the downtown Pittsburgh community with these events.
