Where is your favorite place to run in New York City?
From the George Washington Bridge south along the West Side Highway. Running by the water calms me, and the long point-to-point path reminds me of Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, where I ran my first marathon in 1999.
What is your favorite NYRR race?
The TCS New York City Marathon—like the city itself, it’s got grit.
What is your personal running motto?
Run smart, run happy.
