This was a great 5k! Gave me a great Hill workout. It was basically big hill after big Hill with a slight downhill at the end. I would compare these hills to similar ones in San Francisco. I had no idea Manhattan had such steep hills.
This was my second year in a row running this race. This year the course had more hills than last year. One big one about 1.5 miles into the race after that it gets flat. somewhat. The was very organized like all New York road runners race.
I was looking forward to this race all year long. I have hear so much about how great it was to run in Harlem. It didn't disappoint in other races at starting line I'm always a little nervous but this race was a little different.
