This musical NYC Marathon is at the 13 mile mark, so the Race is either half over or there is still half to go- kind of like that old glass of water and its fullness, lol!
There are many reasons to Run, and we'll open with the most important I can think of.
Many years ago when I first thought of doing this show, a flurry of songs immediately came to mind.
One was by Laura Nyro, who is shamefully neglected by Commercial Radio, but we'll hear her.
I myself have never been into Long Distance Running, it's too vague for me, I much prefer to see the goal I am running for.
In Baseball, going from first to third on a single...that makes sense, and there is the possibility of being thrown out.
The times I have jogged with people I am bored out of my skull, there's no point to it- after awhile I find I have nothing to say to the other person...and little breath left to do so, lol!
But I do admire Marathon Runners, giving it all they have to finish the Race, reaching inside mentally and physically for that last ounce of whatever it takes.
Best wishes to all who are running Sunday in the Marathon, may you make it all the way with your best time ever!
And keep on Running for many years to come!
Oh, and I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!
Undoubtedly next year I will return to that.
But one never knows...!
