As I stood at the starting line, my heart beating like a syncopated drumline against my chest, the memories—a DNF during the 2022 NYC Marathon—weighed heavily; it was a stark ending to a dream nurtured through countless predawn runs in the silent symphony of NYC's earliest hours.

Congratulations! Here is to what's next.
So epic Marcus, you and Shawn should be very proud of the training and effort you’ve both put in over the last couple of years!
Idk how you handle everything that you do, but man it’s inspiring.
