Last Sunday I was pleased to participate for my third-time in the New York City Marathon, the world's biggest and most popular marathon (go New York!). Originally a Central Park race with fifty-five finishers, the race now has approximately 50,000 finishers from all over the world, which explains why it is always so crowded. Despite the very unseasonably warm fall day, I was happy to see Liz, who ran last year, cheering very enthusiastically in Brooklyn. But give me some colder weather, autumn! Oh well, there's always next year.
