the nyrr moved packet pick-up for the nyc half marathon downtown, to the metropolitan pavilion north on 19th street. that's even further south than the days when nike sponsored the race and pick-up was at niketown! the new location is large enough to stage a mini-expo, a kind of marathon expo light experience (including a small area for presentations)!
i picked up my stuff this afternoon, including the great tech shirt pictured above. while not scientific, the sizes seem to run small! i opted for a medium and later discovered that it was more like a small. i may try to exchange it, or it may be another shirt for katie :D
once again, i'm running the race on behalf of the world lung foundation. this will be my 4th (of the five) nyc half marathon. don, emmy, and i ran the inaugural race in 2006. i skipped it in 2007, and have run the rest of them on on behalf of wlf. it's a fantastic course and event!
as always, if you're running it - say hi!
