A Beautiful Day for the Half Marathon

April 16th, 2007

(Originally posted on The Brooklyn Record):

This weekend the weather held out long enough for 4847 participants to run 13.1 miles from Coney Island to Prospect Park. Runners all gathered first thing Saturday morning to run the biggest race in the borough. There was a chill in the air at the beginning, but by the time they arrived in the park, everything had warmed up and crowds were out to cheer on the runners.
The photo above was taken on the boardwalk as runners finished mile 3. Those of us standing out there cheering them on bounced with the vibration of nearly 10,000 feet pounding on the wooden planks. See the rest of the photos of the race here
