And we’re off!
Welcome to our TFK NYC Half team. Today we ran 6-8 miles in freezing cold Central Park. But the enthusiasm and camaraderie of the group warmed us to our soles. So many runners said if it weren’t for the team, they’d be back in bed, toasty and warm, and maybe feeling a little guilty.
I had so much fun meeting some of our new TFKers, like Sebastian from Australia who met two other Aussie TFK teammates – now that’s a small world! And Nate from Nebraska who is running his first half. He does voiceovers for Kindle so you may be familiar with his voice. Jessica Damouni was inspired to run by her mom who has completed 10 marathons. Jessica joined TFK for the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon and will run it with her mom.
“Our races are to our sport what Wimbledon and the Australian, U.S., and French Opens are to tennis, and what the Masters, U.S., and British Opens and PGA Championship are to golf. Each race has the history, the tradition, the honor roll of legendary champions, and a special place in the eyes of all to make them stand apart from the other events.” Mary Wittenberg
