yesterday i picked up the bib and tech shirt for the brooklyn half marathon. it was bit strange heading over there on wednesday, since most packet pick-ups are on thursdays and fridays. this time around, in an effort to accommodate the 15,000 strong field, nyrr added began the pick-up on tuesday.
the brooklyn half is one of my all time favorite races. logistically, however, it's a nightmare. the early start (7 am) makes the trek down to prospect park from westchester a challenge (that said, it is a bit shorter than the trek to the old start - in coney island!).
on the qualifying point side, this will be my fifth on the road to nine for 2013 (and i still need a volunteer credit).
as always, if you're at this one - say hello :D
