The crowd support for this race is second to none. DJs and various running clubs brought so much energy! NYRR production was top notch as usual.

My complaint is the 3-4 miles on Ocean Ave. I’ll rather run along the water or other more scenic portions or Brooklyn. This might be my last time running THIS Brooklyn Half. I’m considering staying local with the Marine Corps Historic Half or running NYC Runs Brooklyn Half instead.

The other issue with this run is getting off Coney Island via rideshares. Two years straight of multiple canceled rides that almost had me miss my late checkout at my hotel. Maybe if I run this again, I’ll stay the extra day to enjoy the post race festivities and beer.

I absolutely loved this course! Mt Vernon to Old Town via the Mt Vernon Trail was a blast! The production was everything you expected and more. Shuttles to the start ran flawlessly and packet pickup at a local running store reminded me why I got into running over 13 years ago. Add this to the many awesome DMV 10Milers. I didn’t stay for the post race party as I had honey-do-lists to complete at the Homefront. Passing on local craft beer is rare for me.

I came into this severally undertrained due to some illness and life. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this event. My first half in Delaware with a familiar race organizer, Corrigan Sports. I’m bias and love all their events! This was part of my Big Freakin Deal Challenge with the organizer. My favorite portion of the race was running along the river in the park. The start and finish location in the park next to the river was a really good vibe. A couple craft beers is always a must and they had those on deck for all the finishers.

Next year I’ll train better and run for a decent time.

This 10mile running tour of DC has great scenery. The production and logistics was manageable with so many parking and arrival options. I loved running Memorial Bridge and Haines Point. It was a bit crowded at the start even though corrals were used. This will be another annual 10Miler (Baltimore/Annapolis/Army) for me in the DMV area.

This was race one of the Double Blossom (5K &10Miler). Although I work in the capital, running the closed streets felt so new. Decent course with no hills but great views around the capital for such a 5K. Production was great and all the volunteers did a great job of communicating to Double Blossom runners about the additional line. Raceday packet pickup is available or you can attend the expo at the National Building Museum.

Outstanding event by NYRR! My second straight year running this.

I started off way too fast and pushed myself until calf cramps around mile 9 near the United Nations building. I ran the bridge and FDR way too hard with all the inclines. Times Square was a blast and ran that portion with my music off.

This is by far my favorite Half Marathon! The course, production, spectators, and fellow runners (Facebook group is great too).

I’ll be completing my 4 of 6 series to be back next year.

I’m a sucker for runs with bridges or water. My third time running in this event and the windiest yet. This completed my double after yesterday’s Richmond Half. Corrigan Sports never disappoints as I’ve ran in many of their well run events. Two more Bay Bridge Runs to complete the medal set!

My only issue is the parking at the Navy Memorial Stadium. More than one gate should have been used to get runners to the shuttle in a timely manner.

Richmond Half Marathon complete! This was such an overall good event. This run and environment has an Austin Marathon vibe and the neighborhoods came out to support the runners.

From beer, mimosa, whiskey, pickle juice, candy, to everything in between. And yes, I did partake in some of the festivities.

The downhill finish felt great with a big post race party that was too cold with no change of clothes setup.

I may have to add this to the yearly event calendar but have that bag checked with a change of clothes.

NYRR’s 5 Boroughs Series complete. I set a goal at the beginning of the year to finish this series for a guaranteed spot into the NYC Half in March 2024. I felt great and should have had a sub 2:24:00, but couldn’t resist the selfies and photos.

Not only did I complete it but enjoyed each event and the time spent in the Big Apple. The views during this run were second to none!

NYC, see ya in March 2024.

I’ve been an avid follower of District Running Collective for a couple years. This was my first event with them and lets just say, they get down. Hennessy shots near the turnaround and just a real good vibe. I couldn’t stay for the party but will make plans on a future event. Packet pickup was probably the best I’ve seen. The people were very social and inviting.

The Bronx 10Miler was another well run event by New York Road Runners.
First time running this event and enjoyed the DJs placed throughout the course. A nice tribute to Hip Hop considering it’s the birthplace & 50th year celebration.

The weather felt great and the Bronx really came out to support the runners. Yankee Stadium served as the backdrop of the start/finish area with local businesses serving coffee, fruit and sandwiches early in the morning.

One more in person NYRR event (Staten Island Half) to guarantee the NYC Half in 2024. Overall, a good weekend for the family and enjoyed the change of pace.

Kicking off my fall events with the Annapolis 10Miler. Felt great and treated this like a long easy run. Walked all the hills on the back half of the course and really enjoyed the bridges. Well organized with great volunteers. Loved the start and finish at Navy Memorial Stadium.

I’ll recommend if you want a good running tour or Annapolis

Despite being stung by bee, hornet or wasp at the 1.5Mile mark, a good run on these trails with EX2adventures. Friendly runners and good overall experience. Loved running through the corn fields. Oh yeah, the post race food and drinks are always a plus.

Organization was top notch as usual and the Race Director does an excellent job in communicating via email, social media and prior to all his events.

Baltimore 10Miler in the books. A little warm and humid with some rolling hills throughout. Felt good and had a good time with the other runners & Baltimore PD. As usual, post race was setup very well with food, drinks and live music. Race #2 of the Kind Crab Challenge complete.

Packet pickup was at the zoo with no issues to note.

This run will be in my yearly rotation.

Beat my goal of under 2hrs!

Rain rain go away…despite the weather I enjoyed the event and NYRR put on another first class run. The crowd support was crazy and featured every genre of music. The hills everyone talked about in Prospect Park was nothing compared to the Hood Hills I run and Rosaryville State Park in Maryland.

Running wise, I felt great and finally figured out my mid-run fueling. I maintained my training pace and clipped more time off from my last Half. I doubt I’ll ever get near my 2:12PR from over 10yrs ago but we can all dream.
Due to the rain, I left and didn’t partake in the post-race festivities.
