NYC Is Sunday
“Just being on that Verrazano-Narrows Bridge with 45,000 people from around the world was an overwhelming experience. It’s what won me over – I was probably having the same insecurities and nerves that the other 45,000 people on the start line had that day. In 2001 it was right after the attacks on the World Trade Center, so it was also an emotional race. In any race I like to find the historical significance and run with that significance in my mind. I learned that about myself in that race. Feeling like I was running for a larger purpose seemed to drive me on that day.”
– Deena Kastor looking back on her marathon debut at the 2001 New York City Marathon.
