Speaking of Standing Ovations
It is hands-down our favorite New York City holiday. A crisp, beautiful Fall day. 37,000 runners. 5 boroughs. Over 2 million spectators, cheerleaders and fans on NYC streets. It is just a phenomenal experience to be in New York on Marathon Day, and today was no exception. We saw Lance Armstrong living strong. We saw displays of courageous determination. We saw bodies, but never spirits, breaking down. And, most proudly, we saw our own Director of Operations, Jeff Ward, complete his 5th NYC Marathon with a smile on his face. It’s just another reason to add to the list of why we’re his biggest fans. Congratulations Jeff, and to all of the athletes who participated in today's marathon.
