In this episode, Allen, who was at the Javits Center while attending the New York City Marathon Expo ahead of the annual race, shares his changing experience of the marathon over time. After many years of running in the race, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and other health issues which left him unable to run. Instead of giving the experience of the NYC Marathon up completely, he now walks from start to finish.
1st Person is presented by Urban Outfitters.
