This was my 2nd half marathon of 2022. I knew the course would be hilly, and trained the best I could, but a few colds derailed me training some (thankfully not COVID). So my goal going into the race was to finish – no time goal.

I had registered back in November, so I’d been looking forward to this trip for a long time!

It was my first “normal” expo, and I really enjoyed it. The volunteers were super-friendly, great merchandise available to commemorate the event, and so much race swag! My suitcase was packed.

I was a little overwhelmed on Sunday morning trying to find the baggage check buses, but a few runners let me tag along and made sure I ended up in the right spot.

Lots of fears about rain on race day were taken over by the humidity. It was warm at the start, and I tried to be conservative in pace before I reached the hills. And well, the hills definitely disappoint. I just kept moving, and knew we’d eventually get to mile 10!

Course support was awesome, especially the cop who high-fived runners and blew his whistle everytime, and those handing out tissues and oranges.

I was on my own, so after finishing, grabbed my stuff, my celebratory beer, and then headed back to my hotel.

It was a great experience, and has me itching to travel for more races. And I’ll be back at the Pig again in a few years…gotta conquer those hills!

I also recommend joining the race’s Facebook group – so much good information was shared!

This was my first half-marathon since 2008, and I ran it as a member of the fundraising team for The Pink Agenda, to honor my sister, who has breast cancer.

I enjoyed the training, and was in great shape. My goals were to finish, and then to break two hours – and I did both!

Lots of great communication from NYRR about the race, and easy to follow the crowds on race day. Felt like a New Yorker taking the subway to the start at 6 am, LOL.

Enjoyed running through the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn, and the Manhattan bridge wasn’t as bad as I thought. Running the FDR got a little boring, but then once you’re off the FDR, the crowds carry you through.

Great tracking app, and liked sharing my stats via Twitter too. And got some good tips from the NYC Runs community on reddit.
