Allan Steinfeld, New York City Marathon

Dear Horst

Absolutely fantastic. Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to

you and your organization. Sub 2:05 unbelievable. You, Mark, your whole family

and Paul Tergat and his wife must be floating on the air. It is wonderful to

see that Paul, after all his great second place times, finally won and not only

with a W.R. but the first sub 2:05 time. People will run faster. but his

breakthrough will stand forever. Please convey my congratulations to Paul on

behalf of myself and our entire organization.

Most people don remember, but I do since I was there at the finish line,

that Andres Espinosa won the New York City Marathon in 1993 in a time of

2:10:04. And now he shatters the masters record in a time faster than when he

won New York.. Please pass along my congratulations to Andres.

Take care and get a well deserved rest.

Best regards


Michael Nishi, The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon
