I went to the Belmont Stakes this year (as I usually do). Exciting is an understatement! What struck me about the experience was that 90,000 people were all cheering for the same thing. And when the crowd realized that American Pharoah was going to make this the most significant victory lap of his life, it got loud. It was awesome!

[expand title=”Click here to read more…”] So while our chapter is a few members short of 90,000, on August 6, we’ll still have the same energy of a huge crowd as we celebrate our amazing members! It’s our Member Appreciation Event! Come for a Hawaiian-themed evening celebration with festive drinks and well-deserved awards. We are celebrating you! (And it’s free!) One of the things that we’ll be cheering about is that we were awarded OUTSTANDING CHAPTER in our category for Striving for Excellence! After the fantastic year that we’ve had, it is a wonderful feeling to be recognized by our national organization. (This calls for another shout out to the team of Andrew Weinberg, Ben Saltzman, Keith Kennedy, Alexis Newman and Jonas Foster for putting together our submission – thank you!) I’m not sure I’ll be able to live up to rousing speech that Immediate Past President Sarah Hoff gave at the appreciation event last year, but I’ll do my best to make it memorable. There are so many things for us to celebrate – you know I’ll be wearing my running shoes with my grass skirt! Mark your calendar – our terrific Special Events team will be sending out the details soon! PS. I forgot this last month, but congratulations to my fellow Brooklyn Half runners Alexa Antopol and Liz Kupcha! What a great accomplishment, ladies![/expand]
