November - New York Marathon

This year's 26.2-mile race will be remembered for one man who didn't finish and another who was beaten by Subway Jared. Marathon world-record holder Haile Gebrselassie dropped out mid-race and immediately announced his retirement (only to reconsider via Twitter days later). Freed Chilean miner Edison Pena was an inspiration by just running, let alone finishing, after being stuck under ground for 69 days. The winners were Edna Kiplagat and Gebre Gebremariam.
