i'm in! i signed up for the brooklyn half marathon just after registration opened at noon this afternoon. the is one of my all time favorite races (at any distance). the 2013 edition will be my 9th brooklyn half (my 10th if i didn't miss it last year).
i like this race even more now that the half begins in prospect park and finishes at coney island. when i first ran this race in 2001 it began on the boardwalk and finished with the hills of propect park. in this direction we get the hills out of the way at the start :D
the only downside is what seems like the ever increasing price tag. beware sticker shock with the $55 registration ($75 for non-members)... ouch!
as always, if you're at this one - say hello!
update: nyrr just posted that the brooklyn half sold out in just 6 hours. remarkable!
