Caroline Wozniacki, one of the very likeable pros on the Women’s Tennis Tour, not only stood at the starting line of the 2014 NYC Marathon with thousands of other athletes but she was on her feet, beaming with her signature smile after completing the gruelling 26.2 mile-run in 3 hours 26 minutes and 33 seconds.

Caro reportedly had set her sight on making the run in under 3 hrs 40 mins but by crossing the line at under 3 hrs. 30 minutes, she made the qualifying time for the Boston Marathon.

Caro joined many athletes from around the world to raise funds for kids through the Team for Kids and raised more than $80,000 for her cause.

Congratulations Caroline for meeting this great challenge you set for yourself.

POST SCRIPT:
This year’s Marathon was swept – not surprisingly – by Kenyans, Wilson Kipsang and Mary Keitany.
