This weekend's NYC Marathon was exhilarating as ever, boasting some new records, marriages, proposals, and lots of laughs (also less fun apparent heart attacks). It even included one artist live drawing the whole thing from the race. Still—since we assume you are like us and were not one of the 47,000 who ran through the five boroughs—how can you say no to a runners-eye view of the race?

This is the second time that runner Gwen Schroeder has photographed her progress on the Marathon (it was her third marathon) but last year her camera went out mid-run. She created the video by taking a photograph with a camera on her head every second and stringing them together in Final Cut Pro. Thanks Gwen, we feel like we just ran the Marathon ourselves...without leaving the five minutes and change.
