This past weekend was my favorite weekend of the year, the New York City Marathon.
So, today’s episode takes place at the Marathon Expo where I got to hang out with some old friends, some new friends, and a lot of Charity Milers.
We get to hear from the Izzo Brothers who were busy running 123.8 miles on treadmills before running the full 26.2 miles in the marathon– for a full 150 miles!
We get to meet Paula Radcliffe, three time winner of the NYC Marathon, three time winner of the London Marathon, former marathon world record holder, and so much more. A true legend in the sport.
We get to meet new friends like Maurice, who had 26.2 shaved into his beard and was radiating such incredible energy that I had to stop and meet him.
And we get to meet many Charity Milers, from all over the world, who have done thousands of Charity Miles each. Their dedication and personal stories are truly moving– and paint a beautiful picture for what Charity Miles (and the NYC Marathon) are all about.
Thanks to everyone who joined me on the podcast. And thanks to everyone who shared in the spirit of the day with us.
As always, a big thanks to our partners at AfterShokz who make everything we do possible.
My favorite thing about my AfterShokz is how comfortable they are. Because they transmit sound via bone conduction, they don't go inside my ears. Which means they never fall out!
The open-ear design also enables me to hear what's going on around me. This allows me to stay connected to nature when I'm trail-running, and to stay safe when I'm running in the city. This is especially important when I'm running with my son, Max in his stroller.
Lastly, AfterShokz sponsors us. There are a lot of other things they could do with their marketing budget. But they're choosing to go the extra mile by supporting us. That's the type of company they are. In my book, that counts for a lot.
So, next time you're looking to buy headphones, make sure you give AfterShokz a look. Visit charitymiles.org/aftershokz and use code “MILES” to save $50 on one of their product bundles!
