Tomorrow is the Big Day!

Tomorrow is the Yonkers Marathon. 26.2 miles through the city of Yonkers, through near rural areas, through very urban areas, and also some suburban areas. The contrasts should keep things interesting, not to mention all the hills.

I am not sure if there are any other vegans running the Yonkers marathon this year. Almost certainly, I will be the only one joggling it. There may be around 1,000 participants in this race, but most will be there for the half-marathon. If it is similar to last year, only about 100 to maybe 150 runners will be doing the full marathon.

I’ll let everyone know how running the second oldest marathon in the country goes, and I wish everyone much success with their races and their fitness regimen. Thanks for your inspiration and support!
