For the past couple months, Chris Heuisler has been working on this project getting together some of the most notable voices within and outside the running community to give their thanks to Meb Keflezighi before he runs his last marathon at the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon on November 5.
The time and commitment on the project has paid off. The video was recently shown to Meb at a viewing in Mammoth Lakes and it brought him to tears.
Hope you have a Kleenex handy because this one is certainly a tear-jerker.
We’ve decided to also give you, the fans, a voice before the NYC Marathon. Meb has been around the sport for more than a decade and he’s crossed paths with hundreds of runners in the back of the pack. We’re calling on you to send us your #TYMeb memories. Here’s how you can participate!
Also, let’s make it happen. Hundreds of signs saying “Thank You Meb” on the NYC Marathon course.
