The finish line of the TCS NYC Marathon is unforgiving. It is also a memorable finish. I ran the NYC Marathon in 1986, and it was sobering. I had gone out way too fast, and my dreamed of 2:50 became a 3:22. I had not calculated working on my feet all weekend and soaking in the amazing experiences of the city of New York.
Last year’s Men’s race was down to the seconds, and last year’s women’s race was 40 plus years in coming. The finish line will rock your world. So much emotion, so much drama, plus the audience, the 500,000 plus fans on the course lover each and every marathoner.
On NYC Marathon Day, as the late Fred Lebow noted, All of New York loves marathoners.
This video was done by Yours Truly after my interview with David Katz. The finish line is an amazing site and runners come fom aound the world to experience the event that the late Fred Lebow dreamed up and the late Allan Steinfeld and his team made a reality!
Good luck to all racing tomorrow!
