Brooklyn Half-Marathon


This previous Saturday I joined a throng of runners to race the Brooklyn Half-Marathon, a 13.1 mile course that goes from the Brooklyn Museum out to Coney Island. I loved the race and was particularly thrilled to not far away on the finish and run the final 1/4 mile on the Coney Island boardwalk.

Some locations virtually really feel like celebrities, and that is one among them.

So many individuals turned out to cheer us on as we ran, holding every kind of indicators. One lady stood on the backside of a hill with an indication that mentioned “Shortcut this fashion” with a giant arrow. One other held an indication saying “13.1 miles means you’re solely HALF loopy.” However my favourite of the day was this one: “You’re operating higher than the Authorities!” Ha.

The race began tremendous early which was good, as a result of the temperature started to climb because the solar bought increased within the sky. Fortuitously I didn’t really feel the warmth till about mile 10 or 11, and I used to be within the house stretch by then.

Very sadly, I learn {that a} younger man collapsed on the end line and didn’t make it. Wishing honest condolences to his household and pals. What a horrible strategy to finish a contented event.

And what a reminder to all of us to profit from every day we’ve.
