Last year we had such a good time cheering on runners during the New York City Marathon in Williamsburg, Brooklyn that we planned to go to watch the race again this year. However, we weren’t sure where we should go.
Over the years, I’ve written a bunch of posts about running. I’m not a hardcore runner, but I do enjoy the sport. I usually run 5Ks (3.1 miles) with my longest runs being in the 5 mile range.
Last year we stumbled across the path of the New York City Marathon and witnessed something pretty amazing pass by. A man was joggling his way through the marathon. The guy was juggling through the 26.2 mile course! Pretty crazy and impressive if you ask me!
Who knew that some people like to juggle while running a marathon? I didn’t but here is how I found out.
On Sunday, November 3 the ING New York City Marathon was taking place around the 5 boroughs. Kim and I had the bright idea to head to Williamsburg, Brooklyn for brunch.
We made it there in record time but once we got near the area that the marathon ran through, there was no way to drive any further. The streets were cordoned off with police roadblocks for what seemed like, everywhere! We were driving further and further from our destination and then decided to change plans and go elsewhere.
