NYC Marathon, New York, Nov 2, 2014 {0}

On a cold, windy day, I ran with 50000+ other runners and my son Sravisht “Chevy” Iyer. Not exactly the time I’d ever want to mention to anyone, but the experience was unparalleled. Awesome course, and even more awesome crowd support. Ferry, shuttle, and the start line wait – everything worked perfectly.
