It's been a few years since I ran this half marathon, but it is among my most memorable. I didn't PR, but it was one I won't forget because I had just moved from Flushing, Queens at the time. It was in Queens where my love for running started. The course allowed me to retrace my footsteps at the iconic World's Fair site, making it a very scenic course. I do remember there being hills and quite some inclines, so make sure to train on hills for sure.
The medal is among the best swag in my collection, and there were plenty of aid stations throughout the course. I remember it being hot that day, still shorts weather and unfortunately didn't stay for any post-race run on site. However, this is a half marathon I recommend for anyone trying to run all the boroughs or looking for a good NY race.
