This is a statue that I always pass when I run in Central Park. It is Fred Lebow, one of the founders of the New York City Marathon and the person responsible for having the race run through all five boroughs of the city. He ran in the marathon in 1992, after having been diagnosed with brain cancer and he died in 1994. The statue is usually on the east side of the park, but each year for the marathon they move it next to the finish line. I think it is a touching tribute to this man who meant so much to runners in New York.
