Last Sunday I volunteered at the mile 24 water stop for the NYC marathon.
As I watched the runners in agony, I struggled to find the right words to serenade them with.
"Almost there!" True but annoying.
"Looking good!" Sweet but a lie.
"Keep it up!" Inspirational but obvious.
Finally, I settled on:
"If P.Diddy can do it, so can you!"
Irritating yet flashy, New York to the last .2 mile!
