Comparative Affordability Right in the Heart of NYC
Directly across the street from Penn Station and Madison Square Garden, I recommend Hotel Pennsylvania for its comparative affordability right in the heart of NYC. The location is perfect for runners arriving by train via Amtrak, as well as for those coming in by bus to the Port Authority Bus Terminal just a couple blocks away.
I’m a 27-time marathon finisher, including a two-time Boston Marathon qualifier and finisher. Completing my first marathon at the age of 16 gave me added motivation to do amazing things. This last May, I finished my training to climb Alaska’s 20,310-foot Mt. Denali with the goal of being high atop Mt. Everest in Nepal’s Himalayan Mountains in 2020. While I call myself “just a girl from Queens,” my Climbing for a Dream personal fundraiser is a culmination of all the years of hard training. I believe getting to the seven summits will inspire so many to believe in the beauty of faith and never giving up. I’ve already climbed Mt. Kilamanjaro in Africa and Mt. Aconcagua in South America.
