NYC Marathon (November)
At the beginning of November is the annual NYC Marathon. This is definitely one of my husband Will's favorite days of the year. The marathon starts in Staten Island and then goes through Brooklyn - right down Fourth Avenue. We live on 4th Avenue so we can literally watch from our apartment! However we watched with our church family this year, which was SO fun. We have had a lot of community- building opportunities this fall, and watching the marathon together was a fun way to start the morning. We had worship right after and it was neat that so many people came early, reconfigured their commutes and were able to hang out.
I can't say enough wonderful things about this guy, Nathan. He is absolutely amazing with Israel. He is always eager to help him and has been instrumental in Israel's walking progress this year!
Edith wasn't so interested in the racing but had fun playing with friends!
It is such a cool event and we were glad that our church was able to take advantage of the opportunity to watch together!
