My second year in a row running this race. This year was better weather wise, last year it was very hot and this course doesn't have any shade. The course is not that difficult rolling hills, plenty of water and Gatorade stations after each mile.
It was a very hot one on that day. Any race in New York City you should always take the subway to the race and leave very early. The trains run slower on the weekend. This day the trains was delayed so NYRR push the start time back a little bit.
