The race, which will have various television coverage on ABC7 (locally), ESPN2 (nationally) as well as WatchESPN, WatchABC and 7online.com, has varied start times ranging from 8:30 a.m. until 10:55 a.m. on Sunday, November 3. Coach Smith will begin her marathon at 10:05 a.m.
Smith is participating in her first-ever marathon, but she is not doing it alone as she will run for Tri-ing for Kids, which is an organization of individuals of all athletic abilities inspired to compete for a cause greater than themselves and for something more than a medal. TFK provides financial support for children in need due to sickness, disability or injury.
“I am really excited to be running in the 2013 New York City Marathon with Tri-ing for Kids,” commented Smith. “To experience running through all five boroughs with over 40,000 people and over two million spectators will be a thrill that I never experienced before.”
Smith, a three-time first-team lacrosse All-American and a three-time NCAA Champion in lacrosse as well, will be wearing bib #26219 and a Hofstra Lacrosse t-shirt will be part of her marathon day outfit.
