NO SLEEP TILL BROOKLYN

HANNAH EBELTHITE RAN THE 40TH TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON TO CELEBRATE HER 40TH BIRTHDAY, TAKING HER HUSBAND ALONG FOR THE RIDE

The New York marathon is on most runners’ bucket lists. For me, it’s been right at the top since I first started running.

I finally made it in November, to mark a milestone birthday, and my husband agreed to run it with me – his first, my sixth.

Fittingly, 2016 was also the 40th year the marathon has been run on the current route, which made it feel extra special. We couldn’t have toed the start line any more excited.

People who’ve run New York love to tell you what a nightmare the start is. Because all 50,000 runners need to be on Staten Island, you get there super early on official transport (the ferry or buses, make sure you book) and there’s a lot of waiting around getting cold.

In fact, it was fine – just pack a lot of layers that you can discard, including hat, gloves and something to sit on. We were lucky with the weather but still grateful for the layers.
