Marathon runners and rain pour into Silver Lake

Rain, thunder and a lively crowd greeted Los Angeles Marathon runners this morning as they traveled past Sunset Boulevard and Coronado Street in Silver Lake.


  1. I had so much fun cheering on the runners. I can still hear them going along Glendale, but I’m hoarse and soggy now. They were a great group of folks thankful others were out in the rain for encouragement!

  2. Ellamee, ME TOO! Angelino Heights firehouse had a good turn out. How inspirational it was to see all of those hoards of people wheeling themselves, pushing others, running and walking – in the rain, cold and wind. It was a blast giving big shout outs to the folks with their names above their numbers, and so many said thanks for coming out and gave high fives. Good luck to all, especially those participating for causes and in memory of loved ones. Now, for a hot shower and hot cup of tea with honey.

  3. I love the new course! It was so great to be able to walk down to Sunset and cheer the runners on. Inspirational!

  4. Thanks friends and neighbors for the support! I have to imagine standing still in the cold rain is as much of a challenge as running through it was!!!

  5. THANK YOU to all the people who signed up for and showed up to ECHO PARK MILE 5. Echo Park Youth Empowerment has been coordinating different miles during its tenure. We are now Mile 5. The rain was a bit of a bummer, we had some people who just showed up to get a shirt and run home,(bad people, bad!) my volunteers worked there behinds off. Thank you to Peter from Alhambra and the church group kids, the Echo Park Torres family, Ms.Ramirez and daughter from Bellevue Ave, Ms. B. Neal, and all the others who’s name I can’t recall right now. It feels wonderful having people tell you thank you, God bless you for being here for us. OR even asking ARE YOU ALL CRAZY. We must be! Our coordinator Luiza Mavropoulos has been doing this for 26yrs. You can call her a Legasy Volunteer or a sucker for punishment depends on how U choose to view it.
