You might forget the year, but you never forget the moment.And even after all these years, each new moment is as precious and emotionally overwhelming as the first.The cheers get louder, though hundreds, or thousands, of runners have passed, and you feel something in your heart, or maybe it's your soul, stir because you know they will go by in a second or two.And even though you vow not to get choked up, not this time, you can't help yourself.
