THE BEST SIGN I SAW DURING THE NEW YORK CITY MARATHON (AND OTHER THOUGHTS. AND BAGELS.)

  1. The best sign I saw during the New York City Marathon said "TL; DR. TOO LONG; DIDN'T RUN."
  2. (I didn't run the marathon. I took a taxi to a friend's apartment on Central Park South, at the 25.5 mile mark. We watched from the balcony. We ate bagels that I brought from @RussAndDaughters. This felt like important and appropriate carbo-loading.)
  3. (Chef Daniel Humm, from Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad, however, did run. And how!) (This is him, in the navy blue shirt and shorts, turquoise socks, neon yellow sneakers.)
  4. (This is Mary Keitany. She is the woman who won the marathon. She is obviously amazing.)
  5. (The small children with us cheered by yelling: "GO MARATHON!" with joy and with fervor.)
  6. (I cried a few times because it really is such an amazing feat to see.)
  7. TL; DR. TOO LONG; DIDN'T RUN.
