A Portugese runner has never won the New York City Marathon but one of these two women hopes to change that this year. Augusto and Felix have each only completed one marathon, but there’s good reason to watch this dynamic duo on Nov. 6. Augusto ran 2:24:33 to finish eighth in her debut in London in April, while Felix, who dropped out of last year’s New York City Marathon, ran 2:26:30 to finish as runner-up in Vienna earlier this year. Both competed in the 10,000 meters at the world championships in Daegu, South Korea, with Felix finishing eighth and Augusto placing 10th.
