Yep, I’m officially in. Today, I picked up my bib number and my goodie bag from New York Road Runners. Along with my race shirt and other freebies, my goodie bag came with a handy dandy Alliance map of downtown and a three day pass to the Equinox (we have three locations here). I’m not going to lie: training for the 13.1 miles was not easy this time around, with all the rain we had, but there is really nothing like running in New York. There are very few half-marathons that showcase a city as well as this one. A full lap in Central Park, then a run down an automobile free Times Square, then down the West Side Highway along the water (hello, Jersey!) to a victorious finish in Battery Park City.
This year the Alliance partnered with New York Road Runners to offer deals to runners and their families. After your well deserved celebration at the North Cove, come on down to our retailers and get yourself a well deserved meal (and a beer or a mimosa). You’ll need it and we look forward to treating you.
