Everyone has heard of the New York City Marathon, yet not many have had the stamina to run it!
Well, our very own Lisa Suarez from our Billing Department will be gearing up to run this year’s New York City marathon and will be joined by her daughter Jenna. The TCS New York City Marathon course runs 26.2 miles through the five boroughs of NYC and is a model for big-city marathons around the world. This is the worlds biggest marathon that bring in around 50,000 runners to New York City every year.
