Prospect Park, Brooklyn
18 November 2012
This race was HARD. lol I did not train on enough hills to do well on this course, but I survived and had a good time. The weather was perfect for a marathon–40s and partly cloudy. The race had about 500 runners, so it felt just right and definitely not over-crowded.
The course consisted of two lower loops of Prospect Park (about four miles total), then six loops of the entire park. If you have never run in Prospect Park before, the big loop is roughly half uphill and half downhill; there is very little flat. (more…)
