A year ago Amanda had a big idea. She and her husband Bryan, a lifelong run averse couch potato, should take up running for fun and fitness. Bryan was skeptical, but he loves his wife and did need to get in shape. They started with the Couch to 10k app And ran their first 5k race in May 2019. Fast forward a year (and 3 knee injuries between them) later and they are hooked. After running their first double digit training run for a half marathon, they decided to celebrate a special day by running their first marathon in a city they love to visit, NYC. They look forward to 8 months of trainning and are happy to run for a great organization, The Samaritans of New York. We would appreciate it if you could make even a small donation for the race in honor of their cause of suicide prevention.
