Such a fun race!! So stoked to run it as part of this incredible team. Congrats to everyone today!! It was a blast. – Kristine Hinterkopf

 

Phil Kean created a painstaking work of art on his “tribute cape” by writing the names of his 400+ donors in template-drawn Clotbuster polka dots.

 

Jennie Loucks all geared up and ready to go.

Dinner was amazing, but meeting you all was truly the highlight of my trip! Thanks for being so inspiring throughout this entire journey! I hope everyone had an INCREDIBLE run yesterday and enjoyed the experience. I know I did! Hearing people yell from the crowd, ‘Stop the Clot,’ or ‘Clot Crusher’ had me in tears on numerous occasions…we won’t even talk about the finish line.  – Jennie Loucks

 

Faith Delaney stopped a moment for a congratulatory hug and photo shoot.

The marathon was such an amazing experience. Starting on the Verrazano Bridge with the incredible view of the city and Sinatra’s New York, New York blasting was just an incredible feeling and got me choked up. I saw people of all ways of life- young, old, blind, disabled. I saw it all and it was so inspiring. It truly was one big party for the runners and I loved every minute of it. I would have never guessed at 40 I would have run my first marathon. I feel so lucky that this opportunity was given to me but wish I didn’t have to do it for the reason I did. If you ever have a desire to do it, do it! – Faith Delaney
