NYC Marathon

Here are some photos I never posted from the IMG NYC Marathon on behalf of Right to Play back in November!

I wrote about it after I raced but never posted anything...here is a little piece of it...

One of the most incredible days of my life! I was just running in awe the whole day. We started at the south end of the Staten Island bridge, ran through all 5 boroughs, finally ending in Central Park on Manhattan. EPIC.

I have said it before but NYC has really become one of my favorite cities in the world...I think that the Marathon bumped it up a notch. :) I think the thing that got me was the overwhelming kindness of complete strangers. Here we are in a massive city, no one really knows each other and people are just so nice. I didn't get why people put their names on their jerseys when we were starting out...I thought that it was a bit weird but as the race got underway I figured it out. Complete strangers spectating the marathon call people by name and say the nicest things to them..."your looking great mary". It might sound strange reading it here but I was so inspired by it on the run...
