Two Miles In Rio108
The Women's Marathon started (and ended) on the Sambadrome were the spectacle of Carnivale happens every year. Today the crowds and insanity was rather subdued, as the women ran down the same boulevard as the dancers and bands do in March. After passing the stands, the women went out through the streets of the financial district in search of Olympic glory. The only thing that they were guaranteed was a lot of suffering on the way through the streets of Rio.
