I received a phone call from one of my good friends at NYRR – she was someone I had met during the Foot Locker 5 Borough Challenge journey and have remained in close contact with her. She wanted to know if I would be interested in being filmed for an On the Run episode – an online series created/produced by NYRR. With the NYC Half being the first race run on the streets of NYC since Superstorm Sandy, NYRR was putting together some segments on those running the race who were affected by the storm. She was aware that I had organized the Race for Recovery, she thought I would be a good fit.
A couple of days after that initial conversation, I was told that WABC had learned of my story and were interested in airing the segment on their channel during the NYC Half coverage on Sunday. My piece is scheduled to air at 7:16am on Sunday, March 17 on WABC. (More information can be found here.) As soon as I find out the link on the NYRR website and/or the WABC site, I will share it!
