2018 TCS Marathon - William M

Billy M. Bio:

My name is Billy McGovern and I live in Bloomfield, NJ with my wonderful wife, Sabrina. I am a First Lieutenant in the NJ Army National Guard, I work for a Federal Agency in the day and I go to law school at night. I have been an avid runner for as long as I can remember. This will be my 3rd marathon, having run the New York City marathon in 2014 and 2016. My goal is complete the marathon in roughly 3 hours, if I can stay under the 3 hours I’ll be ecstatic. I think the NYC marathon is, without comparison, one of the greatest events I have ever been a part of. It is why I keep coming back. The kindness, togetherness, and positive spirit displayed by runners and spectators alike is extraordinary. I’m a simple, no frills kind of person, and my race day ritual is no different. I usually get up, drink a whole bunch of water, throw on my sneakers, and head out the door. I’m really excited to run for Team Habitat for Humanity because of the amazing work they do, and I’m honored to represent them in the race!
