The whole NYC Half Marathon race weekend was a lot of fun. It started Thursday with the Niketown Speaker Series, which featured City Coach athlete Edie Perkins, and Warren Street’s Marc Antone sharing their expertise with a big crowd Thursday night. They were a pleasure to work with, and provided the audience with a lot of valuable and practical information.
The expo itself was a lot of fun to work, as I acted as the Santa Claus of running; giving away goodies for three days.
We were also in charge of the pacers for the race, and they all did a great job. Pace groups from 1:23-2:30 helped guide the runners to the finish line.
As for our athletes, we had some nice performances.
- Gary Berard – 1:27:54
- Marianne Bellino – 1:31:39
- Amanda Keylor – 2:00:56
- Sarah Wenk – 2:03:00
Congratulations to all the City Coach, Nike Run NYC and Jack Rabbit runners who competed today.
