So about 8,000 people on Long Island participated in this weekend’s ‘Festival of Races’. Between yesterday’s 1 mile and 5k races, and today’s half and full marathon, many of Long Islanders challenged their minds and bodies. The atmosphere was electric and anxious, with annual veterans and nervous newbies all partaking down the same road.
I guess that sums it up. It was an experience that can never be replicated. Our first marathon.
