Watching people race is always an inspiring thing. The marathon is extra special, however; especially this year, as many running in the ING New York City Marathon have been waiting two years for this race.
The runners’ individual stories are amazing. They describe how Hurricane Sandy ravished their homes and halted their racing goals. But humans are resilient. For many, finishing this race will be an end to the tragedy that took place one year ago.
I’ve had the opportunity to visit NYC a few times in my life. The next time I go back will be to run 26.2.
