Last year the Brooklyn Half sold out in 10 hours! Sigh, it’s no longer just marathon races that close out fast. With so many people discovering the beauty, joy and love of running popular races of all distances sell out fast.
In 2012, my husband and I ran this race together (a rare occasion that happens 1-2 times a year). I love being able to get up just an hour or so beforehand to travel the 15 minutes from our apartment to the starting line. The Prospect Park start and Coney Island boardwalk finish is very Brooklyn 😉 Even though the stretch on the closed off highway is slightly boring I still enjoyed the race.
