NYC Marathon – 2016 Spectator Report

Marathon Sunday in New York City is my favorite day in the city. It has been since 2008, when I ran my first race and fell in love with running. Most years I am running it, but I bowed out of 2016, mainly because I was running a marathon in Italy 3 weeks prior. That meant I was on super cheer squad duty! Our cheer support started on Saturday night. Abbe and I had a dinner/sign making gathering at our... read more

Lake Garda Int’l Marathon – 3:05:15

We (Abbe, Dougie, Danika and Eric) landed at noon, rented a car,... read more

Once we all found each other drinks popped open and a ‘Here’s to a vacation weekend’ toast ensued. Fun, had... read more

127 NYRR Team Championships – 32:33

The NYRR Team Championships is a really fun day in the Park. All the teams come out and cheer in massive crowds. In order to race you need to be part of a NYRR sanctioned team. A lot of the team went up to Inwood after work on Friday to a free event The Met was putting on. Dinner was held at Indian Road Cafe, a very cute and unique neighborhood hangout. I opted for the linguine as the server said it was... read more
