How adorable is this #tcsnycmarathon finish!!Posted by TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 1, 2015
Sondra Rose may have been one of the last people to finish the New York City Marathon on Sunday, but it would be hard to find any racer whose finish was sweeter.
Rose, who will turn 78 in three weeks, finished the 26.2 mile race long after the sun had set and as race organizers were cleaning up the finish line. She was still greeted, nonetheless, by cheering fans and her husband, Marvin, who gave her a hug and a kiss. “You made it,” he said.
Rose, of Cedarhurst, N.Y., estimated that it took her around nine hours to complete the marathon course, but she said she didn’t even pay attention to the clock at the finish line.
What motivated Rose to take on the marathon?
