New ING U.S. Social Media Program Aims To Inspire ING New York City Marathon Runners

Pat Croce ( Philadelphia)After spending years training professional athletes and pioneering the field of sports medicine, Croce built a physical therapy/fitness empire and took the struggling Philadelphia 76ers all the way to the NBA finals. Through his books, media appearances and speaking engagements, he's motivated tens of thousands of people around the world. Croce delivers a series of motivational quick hits leading up to the marathon. 

David DeNeire ( Grimsby, Ontario, Canada)At 6'2" and 235 lbs, DeNeire is a big guy. In fact, he calls himself a Clydesdale. While he started running to become fit, he believes that living the marathon lifestyle involves enjoying the entire experience, not just shaving seconds off his finish times. In 2011, he ran 28 races, and he hopes to almost double that number in 2012. When he's not running or writing a popular blog ( www.runlikeaclydesdale.com) for Clydesdale runners, DeNeire helps people purchase their dream home as a mortgage broker.

Steve Mackel ( South Pasadena, Calif.)Running allows all athletes to set and accomplish their own personal goals, which means something different to all runners. Steve Mackel is an experienced runner and elite coach, who runs marathons all over the world while training athletes of every skill level. His training philosophy has been greatly influenced by the body-mind-spirit connection. His coaching/training philosophy is "Train Smart! Not Hard!"

Monica Olivas ( Lake Forest, Calif.)Foodie and personal trainer Monica Olivas is a running — and eating — fanatic. On her popular online site RunEatRepeat.com, she tries to balance her love for food and her love for running. Like many, she started running to control her weight and ended up becoming an avid marathoner.

Jennifer Turner ( New York City)After struggling with weight, this Chicago native embraced fitness in business school and developed a lifelong commitment to an active lifestyle and good health. She has gone on to compete in marathons and triathlons and earned certification as a Lifestyle & Weight Management Consultant. In addition to her life as a busy television executive, she is a self-proclaimed "fitness activator," inspiring regular people to be active. Not originally an athlete, she is passionate about running and helping new runners with gear, training and techniques to prepare for and enjoy a great race.

About the ING New York City Marathon

NYRR's premier event, the ING New York City Marathon is the most loved and most inclusive marathon in the world, attracting elite athletes and recreational runners alike for the challenge and thrill of a lifetime. The race has grown tremendously since it began in 1970 with just 127 runners racing four laps of Central Park. Now, almost 50,000 participants from all over the globe flock to New York City every November for an adrenaline-filled road tour of all five boroughs, starting on Staten Island at the foot of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and ending in Central Park. Some run for prize money or bragging rights, others for charity or their personal best. All are cheered on by more than two million live spectators and a TV audience of 330 million.
