Logos Consulting Group and Logos Institute for Crisis Management & Executive Leadership recognize Kristin Johnson, senior advisor, for completing her first marathon on Sunday, November 1, in New York City. The TCS New York City Marathon is the world’s largest marathon, with more than 50,000 registered runners.
Kristin joins several of her Logos colleagues as an official “marathoner.” Helio Fred Garcia, Barbara Greene, and Laurel Hart have also completed the 26.2-mile run through New York’s five boroughs. Raleigh Mayer completed three NYC marathons, including one with a sub-four hour finish. Raleigh also served as vice president and spokesperson for the New York City Marathon for many years, providing strategic counsel on all public affairs and press matters, directing publicity for corporate sponsors, and advancing the exponential growth and development of the event. Anthony Ewing, who completed three half-marathons in October alone, completed his fourth New York City Marathon in 2011.
Marathons are considered to test mental endurance as much as physical endurance. Adam Tiouririne, who has served as the official “voice” of the Illinois Marathon for seven years and counting has encouraged countless runners through the finish line.
“With more than 10,000 participants in the Illinois Marathon, our goal is for each one of them to feel special,” said Adam. “Calling individual names over the loudspeakers at Champaign’s 60,000-seat Memorial Stadium is one way to do that.”
Logos applauds all runners who demonstrate the commitment, training and stamina – both physical and mental – to complete the long run. Congratulations to all 2015 finishers in New York and beyond!
