The New York City Marathon!
This Sunday over 40,000 runners will hit the road in New York City for the world's largest marathon. It's a national event as much as it is a sporting event, traveling through all five boroughs of NYC.
My own personal experience with the marathon came back in 2001 when, two months after 9/11, my wife ran in the race.
While the wounds from the attacks were still incredibly fresh, the mere fact that the race took place was a major victory.
This years race, 10-years later, has special meaning as well with members of Families of Flight 93 Runners participating!
