OMG….I just spoke to Matty Long!!!

I just got off the phone with Matty Long…the New York City firefighter who was almost mortally injured while on his bike back in 2005. He was actually hit and drug by a NYC bus during that year’s transit strike ! His story was in Runner’s World a couple years ago because he ran the ING NYC marathon and completed it in 2008 despite all his struggles after the accident! He is now one of the “Men’s” magazine 25 most fit men in the world…one amazing guy!!!!

He has his new book out (The Long Run…) and is at a Running Expo in the Lehigh Valley signing it. My friend Donna is there…she recognized him and told him that I was a huge fan!!! So he said he would get on the phone with me!!!

I’m still in shock!!!
