Only in New York
Those 15 minutes of fame? Mine didn’t happen on camera. They happened on 4th Ave in Brooklyn during the TCS New York City Marathon on Nov 5. From Sunset Park to Fort Green, I was carried by the deafening chants of dear friends, acquaintances and perfect strangers, shouting my name like I was the mayor —my ‘mom friends,’ my friends' moms, my kids' teachers, their friend’s parents, our neighbors, the butcher, my favorite barista, UJA colleagues cheering their hearts out, and every acquaintance in between. Four miles of euphoria converging in a 'this is your life' meets Sesame Street moment. Marathon Sunday. The one day a year when the Big Apple feels like a small village. Definitely worth the schvitz.
