I’m back at it, catching the action with New York Road Runners’ “On the Run at the 2013 ING New York City Marathon.” We’ve got five race week episodes coming to you starting tonight, Wednesday, October 30. Joining me this year are Olympians Carrie Tollefson and Tim Hutchings as we give viewers an inside look at the largest marathon in the world.

What in store “On The Run?” We’ve got stories about runners from the front of the pack, in the middle and the back. The motto of this year’s race is “YOU make it the marathon,” and our show reflects that. Sure, we’ll talk to the pros, including World Champion Edna Kiplagat, defending champion Geoffrey Mutai and American challengers Meb Keflezighi and Jason Hartmann. Shalane Flanagan and Lopez Lomong will stop by before they run the NYRR Dash to the Finish Line 5K on Saturday morning. And a few marathon legends will stop by the “On The Run ” desk too.

But we’re also focusing on some of the 45,000 runners who may not be pros, but whose stories are inspirational, heart-warming, or just plain enjoyable. A competitive eater? Check. The oldest NYC Marathon runner in history? Check. Celebrity runners? Check.

So please check out the show. They will be available online daily at after the following times:

  • Wednesday, October 30: 8:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, October 31: 8:00 p.m.
  • Friday, November 1: 8:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 2: 5:00 p.m.
  • Monday, November 4: 4:00 p.m.

Race Report: Walt Disney World Marathon 2013

Hot dog! It’s one of Mickey Mouse’s favorite phrases and it couldn’t have been more appropriate for the 20th Anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon on January 13, 2013. The mercury climbed to unseasonably warm temps, with a high of 81 degrees and humidity to match.

But the heat didn’t stop the 20,000 finishers—myself included. Dressed as Cinderella in Rags with Jacques the Mouse by my side (played with gusto by my husband), I soaked in the sun as I ran around the world—Walt Disney World, that is.

It was a magical run punctuated by an army of Disney characters, spectators, and volunteers who helped make it a fairy tale run to remember. Read the rest of this entry →

The Walt Disney World Marathon

Hot dog! It’s one of Mickey Mouse’s favorite phrases and it couldn’t have been more appropriate for the 20th Anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon on January 13, 2013. The mercury climbed to unseasonably warm temps, with a high of 81 degrees and humidity to match. The sun hung hot and heavy in a largely cloudless blue sky as runners worked their way around the World—Walt Disney World, that is.

I was on hand for all of the weekend’s action, from the Health & Fitness Expo to the Pasta in the Park Party, the Walt Disney World Marathon Meet Up and the Downtown Disney Cool Down After Party.

As one of the weekend’s 65,000 runners, I soaked in the sun as I ran through Magic Kingdom, the Walt Disney World Speedway, Animal Kingdom, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot on marathon morning—dressed as Cinderella in Rags with Jacque the Mouse by my side, played with gusto by my husband. These are my highlights from the weekend, including a few brushes with Mickey Mouse himself. Read the rest of this entry →
