Congratulations Kim! Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us! I hope to run it next year and I'm even more excited now thanks to your awesome story!

Good wrapup, Kim...I was there running it too. And I have to agree about #5 - I was going through a tough time as we ran through Brooklyn (undertrained I guess), but when we turned south and entered Harlem, the crowd gave me new life. The bananas they were handing out probably helped as well.

Central Park was beautiful and whatnot, but did we seriously have to do it in the uphill direction? I swear the final 3 miles were all uphill. I was so cooked by the time I hit the line that my vision was spotty. And apparently I wasn't the only one - people were dropping like flies as I did the death march.

Good times...can't wait to do NYC again!
