  • Everyone waited until Friday night to get their bibs, so the line at NYRR wrapped around the block
  • Bright florescent tech shirts were what you used to get; for the past two years, it’s been a fugly blue singlet
  • Although the weather report stated 66F, it seemed a lot hotter; the start was in the shade, so waiting wasn’t bad; however, you were in the full sun for most of the race
  • There were a lot of people — 9952 finishers, so it always felt a little crowded. A woman face-planted at the start when she tripped over a speed bump and was almost trampled
