Manhattan Half Marathon

I think I'm finally thawed out from the race this morning. It was cold, about 15F the whole time I was outside. The new start location this year was a big improvement making it much easier for me to get to the race. (When I ran it a couple of years ago, having to wait around to switch trains/ take a cab/ run to the starting line and still missing the start wasn't so fun.) I arrived early and got in a little over 40 minutes before the start so I could get a total of 18 for the day. Having these long races with lots of water and cheering volunteers along the course makes the long runs easier, that's for sure.

Time: 2:25
Distance: around 18 miles
