Brooklyn Half Recap

I’d love nothing more to be writing a recap of how awesome the Brooklyn Half was, how I got my PR and how I schooled the streets of Brooklyn with my epic running skills. I don’t enjoy writing about bad runs, injuries, sickness and defeat however I only write the truth. 4:10am – buzz, buzz, …
