The New York City Marathon

The New York City Marathon

The New York City Marathon was this past weekend. We headed over to Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn to watch some of our closest friends run. Since the marathon was cancelled last year and no one I knew was running the year before, this was the first time I had the willingness to get up on a Sunday morning before 8 and watch.

I stood there, people watching and snapping pictures for a good hour before the first runners neared the 11 mile mark. During that time, the wheelchairs zoomed passed as well as this man pushing below. My hands began to freeze. A bit of inspiration settled in me. Thinking back to the half marathon almost six months ago, which ended in hate and tears, I couldn’t help but thinking about running that twice over, in one go.

So yes, a lot of inspiration came from these runners, their training and their motivation. It was beautiful. Congrats to all… but especially Steve, Jayne and Mikey… for outperforming all of us who watched intently from the rooftops and sidelines. We are so proud!

And, for the first time, I threw a little snap shot from my lens together for you to enjoy. Still practicing, but this was fun…
