Cajun Tomato’s NYC 100 is a periodic series chronicling my experiences and observations as a new New Yorker. Today’s post – No. 34, if you’re keeping score at home – is about the 2013 New York City Marathon, which happened Nov. 3.
The winning times long since recorded, they arrived in bunches at mile 16 like waves at sea inching toward an unseen shore. Theirs would not be the names etched in glory on this day yet they pushed onward. Completing the New York City Marathon would be prize enough.
