Ali on the Run Show Episode 679: My 2023 New York City Marathon Weekend Recap

“I am not going up on that stage crying, but I don’t want to dismiss this moment! I want to take this all in and I want to feel this. It was an incredibly powerful thing.”

It was a New York City Marathon to remember. I had the privilege of getting to be a part of the international, ESPN, and ABC7 broadcasts on race day. I hosted a live show with Ellie Kemper. I ran the Dash to the Finish 5K. I was the race announcer at the TCS Run with Champions youth race. It was all the best. This is my exhaustive recap of every step.
