this marathon was meant to be a fun run. no pressure of doing personal record or running faster than my co-runners. this is purely to enjoy my hometown. after years and years of running, i finally managed to run the city i call home. running the 5 boroughs of NYC was exciting yet painful. exciting because running with 50,000++ is just crazy. the cheering crowds were hyped up as well. painful because running 5 bridges is not fun. i cursed the smallest bridge because running an incline (even a small one) after 20 miles is NOT a fun thing to do.
will i do it again? maybe. i've learned my lesson to never say never.
now to the next adventure :)
