I did it!!! I walked my second 1/2 marathon and had a great time doing it! Walking a half marathon in NYC at night with my mom, my sister and about 3,000 other women and some men in our bras was quite an experience...and I cannot wait to do it again. It's always been my goal to walk a full marathon and I think this is the venue to do that in - the time limit is much more lenient - you have 10 hours instead of 7 or 8 like you do with the normal marathons. Depending on how the year goes, I just might sign up to do the full marathon next year - if I can get my mom to do it with me!!!
