I received a magazine in the mail about a month ago. Getting magazines isn’t usual for me because I have a number of subscriptions, but this one was special. I reported that I ran the New York City Marathon last November. This is the official magazine of the results.
It’s a nice commemorative piece in general, especially considering how much I paid for the race! But there’s something about this magazine that makes it extra special for me. There were almost 50,000 people that finished this race, including many elite athletes and celebrities. But somewhere in this list of finishers, there’s me.
It’s a little hard to see, and rather small print. Here’s a better look.
Yes, I know that my internet results can show the same information, and even more detail, but it’s kind of refreshing in this digital age to see your name in print.
