New York Marathon

I just wanted to publish some stuff to read these days and I've come across this article on the New York marathon from The New York Times. I know the article is a bit dated, as the race took place in November, but it is always a good and entertaining read to keep our English afloat.

Self-study activity:
Read the article by clicking here and answer these questions from The New York Times learning blogs:

WHO were among those running in and watching the 2010 New York City Marathon?
WHAT did some of the signs say?
WHERE in the city did the marathon disrupt church services?
WHEN was a paraplegic marathon contestant named John Benedetto paralyzed?
WHY do you think people run marathons?
HOW many official entrants were there in this marathon?
