Marathon Runner Spotlight: Kyle

Today’s Runner Spotlight is all about Kyle! A Knicks fan and avid runner, Kyle already had guaranteed entry to the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon, but still wanted to fundraise on behalf of a Charity Partner for the race. As someone who grew up with dogs, and has a dog of his own, PAWS NY was the perfect fit!

Why did you decide to run the Marathon? Have you participated in long races in the past?

This will be my first Marathon but I have done multiple Half Marathons.

What is your connection to PAWS NY? Why is this cause important to you?

I wanted to support a charity while running the TCS New York City Marathon. I love animals, grew up with pets, and I love my dog, so PAWS NY was a great fit.

How long have you been running? 

I have been running for the last 6-7 years.

What do you do in your free time (besides run)?

Beside running, I like to read, play video games, watch television, and take my dog for walks.

Share 2-3 fun facts about yourself! What should we know?

  1. I have torn both my ACLs.
  2. I am a lawyer.
  3. I’m an avid Knicks fan.

What are your goals for the Marathon? How can PAWS support you?

I want to finish the Marathon in under 4:45:00!
