Susie shared some of the highlights of her experience. She said that it was amazing to see all of the people that participated and the thousands of spectators that lined the route. "[The marathon] really brings the whole city together," she said. She saw a lady, in her 80's determined to finish the race. A Saturday night mass at St. Paul's Cathedral in Manhattan was a very special experience when the priest invited anyone running in the marathon to come to the high altar. After delivering a special blessing on the runners, the priest revealed that he too was running in the marathon. Congratulations Susie!
