It’s very loud. It’s quite packed here. Getting to the start is a real pain. It is hillier than you would probably like it to have. Additionally, on Sunday it is expected to be warmer than runners would like it to be.

The NYC Marathon will always be on the list of anyone who has even dreamed of running 26.2 miles with a crowd of people. This is the magnificent journey through the greatest metropolis in the world.

There are a lot of bridges to cross; actually, there are only five of them, but two of them are extremely long. There is a stretch of unending flat ground early on, and then there are a few deceptively difficult hills toward the end that will put your mind to the test just as much as your legs. In addition to this, there are a great number of random people applauding and passing out water, bananas, and orange slices and more adoration from the general public.

This is a marathon in 13 parts. If you are a veteran, a first-time marathoner, or you know someone who will be running and you want to comprehend the experience from within the barricades, this is the marathon for you.

The journey begins crossing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Big decision here. Should you hasten your speed because you are attempting to set a new personal record, or should you pause for a moment to capture a picture of the Statue of Liberty and the city skyline in the background?

As they run, a significant number of people will start shooting at them. The second golden opportunity presents itself if one ascends to the top of the median and then turns around to face the starting line in order to take pictures of the crowd commencing the trek.
