BROOKLYN -

A young man from Brooklyn was selected as one of the TCS New York City Marathon's grand marshals.

One student from each of the city's five boroughs was selected for the honor as part of the Rising New York Road Runners youth fitness program.

Jaylen Reid, 12, attends the Dock Street School and says he is extremely excited for the marathon's festivities.

Although Jaylen is a sprinter, he says he is looking forward to running the marathon himself when he is old enough.
