new york city in terms of its past involvement or past actions. >> now marathon weekend did kick off with the parade of nations. it featured 1300 delegates representing about 130 countries, and that was all followed by another spectacular marathon tradition, fireworks that lit up the skies over central park. now on top of all the evens we mentioned to add to those security concerns, president obama will be in our area again on monday. so add that to the roster of things that police are dealing with over the next, what, 72 hours. >> much to do. >> crazy. >> keeping us safe. working hard, and for that we say thank you. >> yes, we do. >> there we go. >> i enjoyed your piece. that's an awesome back story on cespedes' song. >> little cutety from corona. >> about 25 years old, right around in there, darling, so sweet, and did i mention in the piece that she lives like blocks from citi field.

morning started off so mild. we're about 17 degrees colder in poughkeepsie, 15 degrees colder in andover, 5 to 10 degrees colder in most other this morning. we're in the mid-40s. we're not going to get out of the mid-50s in a lot of spots. it stays cool before we get that summer of warm air. what that basically means for us is it's cool and calm and dry for the trick-or-treaters. moms and dads are happy about this. not as gusty for game 4, so the winds were pretty big last night. tonight we're going to settle them down, southwest winds up to 12 miles an hour, and a southwest wind at citi field could carry the ball out to right center field. much nicer this year for the tcs new york city marathon. we have 55,000 runners running the race, so if you're going to be out there early in staten island, which we all are, no matter what corral you're in, you're out there early waiting for a bit, we'll see temperatures in the low 50s to start. that's the overnight low is 50 degrees. that's how we start out there. we could actually get a little
sprinkle. a large front back here to the midwest, ask overnight tonight, maybe a little bit of that squeezes in, but we don't game. we've got 54. degrees. i do not want late baseball tonight, just win it and let's cool costumes turn into a chance for a little sprinkle with that front that comes in, not a big deal if it happens in staten island. that's just fine. mostly dry, though for the entire race. in fact, this is what i'm planning. by the time i get over there tomorrow, it will be cloudy, and then we get a little break, it looks like, and then 6 a.m. we're clouded over, perhaps a little spotty shower. that would be the time frame early on by 6 or 7 a.m. by the time in the bronx, i think a little bit of sun, sunshine over the bronx is what i'm hoping for. accuweather seven-day forecast looks like this, rain moving in south and east on monday night, then it's warm, above average, a very mild pattern setting up for the second half of the week.
accuweather seven-day forecast, good for halloween, good for can't beat it. it's good down the stretch for rob who's still holding on. >> he does. he is. >> yep. >> you'll be out on the course >> can't wait. it's going to be great. >> 1st avenue, tcs new york city marathon, 61st street andst 1st avenue. >> you're out reporting, you're out running. >> rob's on the couch. >> i'll be checking you all out. >> p90 couch. >> straight ahead on eyewitness news this saturday morning, the tcs new york city marathon kicks off in less than 24 hours. physical therapist tony deangelo is here to talk about preventing injuries and soothing sore muscles after one
welcome back everybody, more than 50,000 runners are taking part in tomorrow's tcs new york city marathon. >> ask with less than 24 hours to go before the race, physical therapist tony deangelo joins us with some very important last minute tips to help prevent injuries, soothe muscle cramps and also the post-race suit. >> soreness. >> the post race scoot, what is it called when people are kind of gingerly walking the day after. >> that's just the post-race shuffle. >> if you're lucky. >> why are people sore. i mean 26.2 is a long stretch, but what are some of the body mechanics that cause all this? >> the reason why most people develop injuries after marathons are deconditioning, two flexibility issues and three repetitive motion on an unforgiving surface like a roadway. >> and feet are the worst. >> feet are probably yes the worst. >> speaking from experience. >> you know this far better than i do. walk us through some of the
>> one of the main injuries we typically see is tendinitis, this is a great tool for almost every runner. you can do this for prepping any muscle for flexibility training, so this can be done on any mums followed by a stretch. >> he's on one of the foam rollers here and he's kind of just putting all his weight and pressure on to that area. >> yeah, most runners and most individuals when they first start this exercise they hate it because it's very uncomfortable, but what it does is it preps the muscle with increasing circulation, increasing flexibility, and then the muscle's great and ready to be stretched. >> you're doing a great job. >> and you showed us another exercise with the band. >> lay on your back. rachel's going to do some stability exercises and strengthening exercises. >> come up a little bit so we can see you. >> for his core and lateral hit musculature. he's going to separate his knees,. >> maybe come the other way. >> what that's going to do is we're going to have resistance here at the band, and then he's going to externally rotate his
hip. that's going to work the posterior chain, very important in stabilizing the hip and the low back. next he's going to roll on his back. we're going to do some bridging exercises. this works the core and lateral musculature and posterior chain. these exercises can be held for 30 seconds to build endurance. you can make this more difficult for the advanced runners by doing single leg bridges, holding for 30 seconds to build that endurance. >> that's how they got ready for 50 shades of grey. same thing. >> we're going to do some weightbearing exercises. that's more functional. >> those two were basically knee exercises, and then the hip flexors, so we're really talking about all the parts that hurt post marathon day, the feet, the knees, the hips, but even if you don't run a marathon those are all critical pain parts right. >> absolutely. this is a walking city. those are all very common for the city.
>> lateral thera band, the more you squat the harder the exercise. again, lateral musculature, abs are nice and tight. you're working your core as well as those lower extremity muscles, an excellent exercise. there's lots of variations to this exercise. >> is there anything you suggest for your friends and family that have sympathy pains for you after you finish. >> i do sympathize for you. tomorrow i will. >> recovering soft tissue massage, getting a nice massage and helping that muscle get circulation is a good medicine for anybody. >> that's my favorite part, the day after a race massage. >> grab your foam rollers your going to need them. >> for more information on injury prevention go to professionalpt.com.
there are no actual must win games, unless elimination is on the line but last night for the mets it was about as close as it gets because no team has ever overcome a 3 games to none deficit to win the world series. and new york did not exactly want to attempt to become the first as the mets returned home to face the royals in the first game in citi field history. david wright had been quiet so far in the fall classic, not here. 2-run shot. curtis granderson in on the long ball action with his own 2- run homer. second of the world series, while noah syndergaard seemed to handle the royal's lineup. he allowed three runs and struck out six in six solid innings of work. wright was back for more in a huge 6th. the two rbi singles, the mets would get four runs in the frame. 9-3 your final. the mets win, they now trail this series 2 games to 1. >> i said before the game we get our offense going a little bit, you know, we play better baseball like everybody does. >> this is when we rise up,
when we've got our backs to the wall. >> now to what would be the biggest sports story in these part ifs there weren't something called the world series going on. jason pierre paul back with the giants and yesterday he spoke for the first time about his return from a 4th of july fireworks accident that left his right hand mangled. jpp began working out with the team on wednesday. he's hoping he'll be able to return to game action soon. when he does he'll wear a special glove and doesn't expect to miss a beat. >> i'm the same jpp that i was last year, you know. it's not going to be a major adjustment, you know what i mean. but as far as like my hand goes, you know, i'll get used to it. everybody excited that i'm here but as far as like going out there and i'm not going to put myself in jeopardy. >> the lone star state has not been kind to brooklyn as of late. san antonio in particular. in fact, the spurs went into last night having won 12 in a row at home over the nets.
last night brooklyn trying to change that, and crashed san antonio's home opener, tim duncan, the ageless wonder, 15 points for him, brook lopez led the way for the nets. he led all scorers with 17 points and the nets led in the 2nd. all that changed after the break. san antonio went on quite a run. patty mills, his own triple right there, 102-75. the spurs once again roll. it has been a quiet week for the rangers who beat calgary at home on sunday and waited until last night to return to the ice as the blue shirts hosted the maple leafs at the garden looking for the fourth win. this one about mats zuccarello, he was just getting started. it remained 1-0 until the 3rd, guess who, there's zucc again, then in the final minute why not, with the net open, zucc burying the empty netter for the hat trick. the rangers get the win. that's your morning look at sport.

kate murray: "i am not a prosecutor. i am a manager." vo: well, the first part's true. kate murray's never practiced criminal law. never prosecuted one murderer, one drug dealer, or one corrupt politician. editorials call murray "utterly unprepared to serve." and "clueless about pressing issues surrounding criminal justice." there's a better choice. madeline singas has spent two decades prosecuting crime. targeting murderers, drug dealers, political corruption. madeline singas. a prosecutor, not a politician. two people have died and two are still missing after a system of torrential rain swept through south central texas. rising flood waters soaked neighborhoods in houston and austin. a flash flood watch and other hazardous weather warnings are expected to last through this morning in that region. crews are also trying to determine whether or not tornadoes touched down in an area last night already socked by what was left of hurricane patricia.
and those storms in texas brought severe lightning. this tower belongs to the national weather service, ironically enough. a technician was recording last night's storm in brownsville when that bolt burst. thankfully he was not hurt, but the lightning did knock out radar that was tracking flash flooding. texas may get another light show tonight, more storms expected to move in throughout the weekend. >> that's actually a radar that was struck by lightning. >> that's crazy. between texas and south carolina, it's been a rough few weeks in the south with all the rain and flooding. >> horrible flooding. >> sending prayers to those folks kind of makes you feel bad because weaver having great weather here, almost 70 going into november. >> i mean next week we're going to be like what? it's november? it's going to be upper 60s and low 70s. i think today is the coolest day of the entire week ahead. >> the stretch. >> the entire stretch. >> if you've got plans today, even though it's a little cool, it's practically average, average, slightly below average
weather for this time of the year. we can't complain. this is really what we would expect, blue skies, east river here. we get the day going, temperatures in the low 40s right now. a light wind expected today. later on this afternoon out of the southwest, i mention it because at the ball field that means it's more likely for the batters to send it out to right center field with a wind like that at mets stadium. citi field's going to be great for baseball later today. normal october 31st temperature will be 59. we're going to be a few degrees below that. nowhere near the records of 82. warmer weather is coming this week. sunset time at 5:55. keep that in mind, follow the ghosts and goblins running around in the neighborhoods. be aware of those times where the lighting will change. temperatures are just above the freezing point for monticello, poughkeepsie and andover. it's cooler than it was yesterday, significantly so by about 10, 12 degrees in most spots. this afternoon without loot of wind and a little bit of sun it should be okay. 56 degrees, an extra layer under the costumes wouldn't be out of the question.
you may want to know. trick-or-treaters, cool, dry, pretty calm during the time you'd be trick or treating. get home early. mets are playing. they're actually in the favor of hitting the ball, that should make for an exciting game. quick spotty showers are possible before dawn tomorrow. it's ideal running weather really. we get the spotty shower coming ahead to the front. it's not a big deal. in staten island we may see a drop or two. that's it, and then we have a beautiful day in front of us. so temperatures climb from today's 56 to 66 tomorrow under mostly dry conditions, and so that sets the stage for really a terrific finish in central park. we'll have more clouds and sunshine through the afternoon, but if you watch the futurecast here, saturday afternoon for the trick-or-treaters, those cool temperatures overnight down to about 50, which is mild for this time of the year, by 6 a.m. tomorrow morning there's just these little spotty chances that we can't completely rule out seeing raindrops. some places may get no rain at all. by the time we finish the
marathon, skies are looking good, maybe a little sunshine peeking through. first pitch 8:07, 54 degrees with southwest winds. by the 9th inning 52 degrees, and i'm emphasizing 9th inning. we need an early finish tonight. we're getting up early for the marathon. here's the accuweather seven- day forecast for you. the week ahead looking fantastic as far as mild conditions, worry-free weather, and high comfort if you will. monday we could see some showers afternoon to evening, 64 degrees, and then it's 70 on tuesday. 69 on wednesday. 71 on thursday, 69 on friday. that's all the way down the stretch how the weather is just going to be easy to take basically. >> right. >> my bib number is 19717. there's a free app that you can download the tcs new york city marathon app. >> yes, i love doing that. >> it's a free app. you download it, just put my
