For those of you training for a spring marathon, running a half marathon in early March is a great way to measure your progress.  The weather will most likely be something that only penguins would love.

Course: A Half Marathon on the super flat and scenic running path that hugs the southern edge of Brooklyn. You’ll run under the Verrazano Bridge and see the Manhattan Skyline from across the harbor. It’s New York running from a whole new perspective.
