“We’re all down on the ground. We are partying with everyone. We’re hanging out with the runners. We’re making cheer tunnels, we’re having kicklines. We are dancing. It is a party, and absolutely everyone is invited.”

I love your podcast! And it’s NOT your fault with the ferry or the bus!!
I ran New York City marathon in 2018, and while I don’t know the details of what happened getting to the start in 2022, I’m not sure that it is unique to this year, and might just be what comes along with running a giant event in a large city. Taking the ferry was a wonderful way to start the day. I did have to wait for about 45 minutes to get on a bus, jumped on before the doors closed and had to stand for the entire slow trip, but was grateful to be making my way toward the start. The problem in my view was all of the Ubers and/or private autos taking individual runners to the start. I basically just tell everyone to account for potentially challenging logistics by leaving your hotel early. And I think I remember that it was you that said that you can just get on the ferry whenever you get to the dock, and don’t have to wait for your assigned time. That was how it worked for me: having those extra minutes up front helped me stay calm when it took a long time to get a few miles around Staten Island.
Keep up the great work and the fun interviews!
