On November 7, I will run the NYC Marathon. It's first mile is on The Verrazano Bridge. This is what it looks like under The Bridge. This was my view from mile 12 of 20.
I was especially thankful to run with my teammates from the Prospect Park Track Club. If I was alone I would have gone out to fast and taken the subway home.
I really did not want to run into the Manhattan today. I am not gonna forget what happened 9 years ago today. But, I don't need anybody waving a sign in my face that tells me how to remember.
