NEW YORK CITY MARATHON

More than 40,000 runners from all over the world will compete in the New York City Marathon. The event this year holds special meaning for many due to 2012’s last-minute cancellation in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The race courses through all five boroughs of the city and is a terrific way to experience the vitality and exuberance of the Big Apple.

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
