Another NYC marathon completed...

Five years in a row I've been a medic - it never gets less tiring!

What can I tell you? Lots of cramps... body fluids... odors you'd rather avoid. Not nearly as bad as some previous years though. Apparently the finish line (We were just after the finish) was quite congested and many people simply passed out at the finish - all thier blood was in thier legs, so once they come to a standstill... they're down. We had some interesting cases though, and its always a challenge trying to treat a patient and tracking down the appropriate translator - lots of non-native english speakers this year, although that's certainly not unusual.
