The NYCRUNS Brooklyn Half (October 2018)
I’m 2 weekends from the NYC marathon and I want one more race under my belt before tapering. I chose the Brooklyn Half Marathon because A.) I’m very comfortable with the course as I’ve ran it several times and B.) NYCRUNS is a good running organization and they always have great medals (all about the medals!).
I actually wasn’t feeling that great heading into this race. It was wet, rainy, and cold. I was also wrapping up a stressful work week with limited sleep. But once I got out there, my body locked in and I felt great. I averaged 8:12/per mile for all 13.1 miles. No stops – felt great. Too bad this race wasn’t the marathon.
