MAHWAH, N.J. — Runner Joe Singleton of Mahwah will be racing in the New York City Half Marathon on Sunday.
Singleton, 30, is in his seventh year of training with coach Aidan Walsh of Racefaster in Ridgewood. He plans on running his sixth marathon — the Chicago Marathon — in October (SEE: Mahwah Marathonner Finishes For Family ).
With little training, the runner finished his first marathon — the NYC Marathon — in three hours and eight seconds in 2009.
"I wouldn't be where I am today without all the support of all my friends, family and coach that believes in me and has faith in me," Singleton told Daily Voice. "It takes a lot of hard work no one will run for you, it takes a lot of dedication and commitment.
I'm just not fulfilling my dream but I also want to honor my parents."
