The Best race ever!! nothing like running through time square, so much energy!! Expo was smaller than expected, a long line to actually get in. we just got our packets and left for dinner. I had joined the FB group for the admin organized a bus to takes us from Manhattan to Brooklyn which was the best. Got to the start village with plenty of time. When our corral was called we went over and they close the corral and we had to wait about 45 minutes to start, downside to that no potty in there (thankfully I was warned) so make sure go before entering corral. The course starts out with a big hill and the Manhattan Bridge hill seemed never ending. After that miles 5 onwards till inside central park was quite flat or hills were insignificant. The crowds participating and cheering on was epic, started in Brooklyn ran on Manhattan bridge and finished in iconic Central Park (it was hilly). I love NYC so I was just so exited that I got in through the lottery to run in this amazing city and best part with my hubby too!
