While most of you were gearing up for a football game at the Linc with some cold beers and grilled meats, thousand of more athletic people were putting their bodies through the joy of running 26.2 miles through the streets of Philadelphia.
Here's a quick little gallery of some of the runners, including race winner Abebe Mekuriya of Ethiopia.

We've seen it plenty and we love it.
Joel Embiid talking trash and trolling the opposition.
But is he ever concerned with possible payback?
It doesn't sound like he is, and for pretty decent reasons.
Embiid, entertaining us like always, explained those reasons beautifully on ESPN's Tuesday edition of "SC6."
Here was his answer:
Oh, no, I'm not worried about that. If those guys that want to get their feelings hurt, if they're not strong mentally, that's not my fault. I think when it comes down to it, and if we all got to square up, I mean, I'm 7-2 and I'm a big dude. I don't think you want to try me. And I'm African, too, so.
That's the whole point of playing basketball — having fun, go out there, have fun, kick someone's ass and just play basketball.
Not sure if Embiid will ever have to square up with an opposing player. He may have to look out for a big dunk when he's protecting the rim or some extra fire from the competition, but it's good to know he's ready to rumble if necessary.
