Bright lights, big city
It all started last February when my friend Lauren got her number drawn out of a lottery of over 1,000,000 people to participate in the New York City Marathon. She couldn’t go alone – she needed a travel companion and moral support. How could I refuse my good friend? And besides, it was the perfect excuse to plan my first trip to New York.
Fast forward nine months later. Lauren has trained diligently, we have recruited another partner in crime (for moral support, of course) and we are on board a plane headed for the Big Apple.
