“What an absolutely thrilling day. My #BRYdesdale triumphed over his pulled Achilles heel and finished in 5:20, which, for those of you who have run this race and know how grueling it is, is nothing short of a miracle,” the “Blue Bloods” actress began her Instagram post.

New York City is also near and dear to “Blue Bloods” actress Abigail Hawk. That famous and beloved city is where the popular CBS show is based. It is also where the show is filmed, which means it is where the actress works to bring her character, Detective Abigail Baker, to life.
While watching her husband compete in the New York City Marathon on Sunday, Hawk also noticed something very important. She noticed how the event gave the city a sense of unity. She also reflected on this feeling in her Instagram post.
“My favorite part of today was experiencing the ecstasy and energy of a city who was brought to her knees, but who has emerged brighter, bolder, and more unified than ever before,” the “Blue Bloods” actress also shared.
The annual race, she said, allowed people to set aside their difference and be united for a brief time.
“There was no politics today. … no ‘he said, she said,’ right, left, liberal, conservative. There were just people,” Abigail Hawk also explained. “People coming together, leaning on each other, cheering for one another, loving, laughing.”
She then added a quote from a song from the musical, “Funny Girl”: “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world …” Barbra Streisand helped make the song famous.
Hawk closed her Instagram post with an endearing message to her beloved city and her husband. “I f’ing (love) you, New York. And I love you, my forever. #tcsnycmarathon,” she wrote.
