Transcript for Sara hosts the SHAPE Half Marathon in NYC
Yesterday was the 123rd annual Boston marathon. And there was a story that really, really touched my heart. Micah Herndon, a marine, he was determined to finish the race to honor the three fallen brothers in arms. When he was hit with cramps that left his legs basically useless. He literally crawled across the finish line to honor his brothers in arms and he said, if he was catching cramps or tired like that, he would just say their names out loud, over and over again, until he finished that race. Our hats are off to Micah and our thoughts are with all those out there who have served their country and have lost family members and also to their families. Absolutely. Military families. Thank you all for your service. We really, really appreciate That's awesome The marathon, you're mentioning the Boston marathon actually had a dramatic finish as the first and second place finishers on the men's side were separated by two seconds. Two seconds. Two seconds now, in some ways that's heartbreaking as an athlete. To finish in the first two is just really unfathomable for me. This weekend, I mentioned -- You ran the marathon? No. I hosted a marathon that was shorter and slightly slower. But I had the privilege to host the "Shape" women's half marathon. It was an awesome event. A bunch of our staffers, nonrunners, ran it. So did my dear friend Amy robach from "Gma." Take a look at some of the highlights from the race. ������ Our host for today's event, Sara Haines. I'll be cheering you on every step of the way, from the sidelines, and show how women truly do run the world. One, two, three -- national anthem, I didn't even hear it. Are you supposed to be jumping? Probably not. Well, I'm with child. Nothing to see here. I'm carb-loading for all these runners, because I'm selfless. You're like that, you're a team player. This is one of the largest all-women marathons in the country. ��� I think I got your number ��� ������ ������ You said it's kind of emotional to watch. Yeah, it's so emotional to watch because it's all these women running across the finish line, all ages. You can see it in their eyes when they make it across the finish line, like, I did it. ������ I got a ride. Oh, there's our people. Do you see them? I'm so proud. "Strahan & Sara." What is going on? Come on in here, ladies. It's so good you guys are here. Congratulations. I have a question, how do your bodies feel now? You're not runners. Some of you didn't even train. You just went out and ran 13.1 miles. How do you feel? Terrible. You feel terrible? Yes. Katia rode in a baby Bjorn for at least three miles. Yes. But you finished 124th. Yes, yes. Out of thousands and thousands of runners. We had a ringer in there. You mentioned 124th, but you ran with them earlier in the race, do you think they held you back a little bit? No, not at all. No. We wouldn't hold it against you. We're so proud of you guys. Thanks to "Shape" magazine.
