We're not crying, there's just something in our eye. New Yorkers gathered across the five boroughs to cheer on the tens of thousands of participants from the 26.2-mile TCS New York City Marathon. For every one person running, there's a eager crowd on the sidelines, cheering on marathoners, handing out water and showing off their "aww"-inspiring (and often humorous) signs. These displays are just one of the many things you will see at the NYC marathon, and we captured just a few of our favorite tearjerkers and comedic signs from the event for you to enjoy while you rehydrate and relax. After you're done with these, take a look at the best costumes from the marathon as well. Good job, New York, you did it!
