Since 2009, Mary Margaret Penrose has taught aspiring legal minds at Texas A&M’s School of Law as a law professor, winning the AALS Teacher of the Year Award in 2013-2014 for her efforts. In 2017, she received the Texas A&M Former Students’ Association Distinguished Teaching Award – a University-wide award at Texas A&M.
Apart from her work, Mary Margaret “Meg” Penrose enjoys running endurance races and has completed the New York City Marathon. The New York City Marathon is an excellent choice for a first – or an only – marathon. Traversing through the five boroughs, it is truly a tour of New York.
Each year, the entry window for the New York City Marathon opens in mid-January and closes in mid-February. It is only during this time period that marathon hopefuls are able to enter into a chance drawn to see if their name is chosen as one of the lucky participants. Based on select criteria, some runners may be offered a guaranteed spot in the race, but they still must sign up for the race during this month-long registration window.
The registration cost for New York Road Runners is $255; the cost non-members is $295–both prices contingent on United States citizenship. Non-U.S. Citizens, which include residents of Puerto Rico and other American territories, can participate for the cost of $358.
