  In honor of the Marathon on Sunday, I thought it would be fun to share my dad’s memories again from his first New York City Marathon experience back in 1986. You know my dad ran the New York City Marathon three times right? So you may have read his post a couple of years […]

I’ve Been Waiting For Today

Halloween candy

What To Do With Your Candy, NYCM And Pile On The Miles

Confession: On November 1, 1991, I went trick or treating with a friend pretending to be a wrong calendar. While not everyone shared in my humor, we were greeted with many happy people who were thrilled to be able to unload the rest of their Halloween candy that was still situated by their front door. I was quite the creative sweet-toothed genius […]
