If you thought I was going to let the New York City Marathon pass without commenting on it, you were wrong. For my Journalism class I had to write a story about it and my professor suggested we find somebody from back home to write about and pitch it to their local paper. So that is what I did. Simon and I spent a good part of the afternoon yesterday watching runners and wishing we could be part of the action. I pitched my article to the Daily Herald and they ran it. Right now it is on the front page of their website, although it probably won’t be for too long. But you can read it by clicking here.
The story was fun to do, and even though I don’t think it is great by any means, I’m pleased with the way it turned out, and even more pleased to get something published. I feel like I am truly a freelance journalist. If somebody who lives in that area and gets the Daily Herald wants to send me a copy of the article (if it is in the print edition, which I assume it is) I would very much appreciate it.
