This past Sunday was the ING NYC Marathon. Marathon Sunday in New York City is one of my favorite events of the year. In the days leading up to the marathon it is wonderful to see all of the people from all over the world wandering the streets of Manhattan taking in the sights and getting ready to run through the five boroughs. There is an amazing energy in the air and even the locals seem a little more welcoming and accommodating. How can you not admire and respect the people who are willingly going to run 26.2 miles??!!

This year with my incredible running moms group, I volunteered at the fluid station at mile 22. We were up bright and early for a hearty diner breakfast at 6:30 and then we made our way to 117th and 5th Ave for our day long shift. It was an unbelievable day. Watching the elite athletes run by up close was breathtaking. But the truly inspiring moments of the day belonged to the endless stream of every day runners that were pushing themselves to complete an awesome feat of running. There were many moments throughout the day that I found myself choked up with emotion. And then of course there was the gentleman who came up, grabbed a water and then deadpanned asked if I could call him a cab- beyond awesome. So many moments… cheering on each an every inspiring runner.

I wish all of you runners a HUGE congratulations!!!! You are truly inspirational and on marathon Sunday you contribute a little bit more greatness to our city.

And, it certainly reminded me to go and lace up my running shoes 😉

Happy Wednesday and Happy Running!
