Being born and raised in Brooklyn, I grew up watching the marathon and it was always something I wanted to do.
I ran in the NYC Marathon on Sunday, November 3 .
The crowds along the way were inspiring with over 1,000,000 people lining the route. My FRONT RUNNERS had my name on the front and there were hundreds of people who shouted my name “Go Rob” “Great Job Rob” “Looking Good Rob” were common cheers.
My partner Shane volunteered at the Mile 9 medical tent, so I stopped there for pictures and a kiss. My mom and brothers cheered me on at Mile 18 and then again at mile 22.
There was a FrontRunners cheering group along the way as well.
Training in the south Florida heat and humidity was rough. Even starting at 5am didn’t help much. I was helped by Frontrunners on my Saturday morning long runs as I finished off my runs with the group for the last six miles.
Ernesto Gutierrez Completes First Sprint Triathlon
1:26.26 Finish Time for the Mack Cycle Sprint Tri Trilogy #2
Second year member, Ernesto Gutierrez finished strong in the Mack Cycle Sprint Triathlon in Key Biscayne on July 21, 2019. Ernesto has trained for over 6 month's with our Tri-Training Crew to complete this goal. He overcame what is often the greatest fear for runners who decide to attempt a triathlon - a concern about the strength of one's swimming skills. But he kept at it, and like most people found out that swimming in open water successfully is mostly a mental challenge, especially when other competitors might accidentally kick you in the head...that and staying ahead of the alligators, LOL. His training teammates, Pedro, Miguel, Eric R, Hero, Sal, Eric E and John congratulate him as do all the members of Front Runners and Walkers Fort Lauderdale.
