Knitting her way through the New York City Marathon


Knitting and running may seem like two passions that sit on completely different sides of the cafeteria, but Northwestern University senior Meredith Parmalee has found a way to bring them together.

This Sunday, Parmalee will knit a scarf while running all 26.2 miles of the New York City Marathon.
