Marathon runners are awe-inspiring. As someone who hates running, I give anyone running any distance major kudos. Those who run marathons just astonish me. 26.2 miles is FAR! I've ridden my bike that far but I cannot imagine running for hours upon hours and mile after mile.
I am happy to announce a 2014 Team Gluten-Free for the TCS New York City Marathon. Team Gluten-Free has had strong representation in fundraising races across the globe and now is your chance to join them! The Celiac Disease Foundation has 5 bibs available for runners interested in participating in this year's marathon. In order to join the team, you need to commit to raising $3,500 for Team Gluten-Free.
Here is some additional information from the Celiac.org website:
The premier event of New York Road Runners, the TCS New York City Marathon is one of the world’s great road races, drawing more than 100,000 applicants annually.
The race attracts many world-class professional athletes, not only for the more than $600,000 in prize money, but also for the chance to excel in the media capital of the world before two million cheering spectators and 315 million worldwide television viewers. As any one of the more than 700,000 past participants will attest, crossing the finish line in Central Park is one of the great thrills of a lifetime.
