I woke up early as I was quite excited about the marathon. The sky was brightening slowly and the Hudson river seems to cheer on for me.
I packed my stuff into the transparent bag provided and brought it with me to the Starting point.
There were like thousands of people already at the South Ferry Terminal, all ready to run!
To accommodate 47,000 runners, you can imagine how many mobile toilets they have.
The sun is out but it is still very cold.
From the Staten Island, you can see the impressive skyline of Manhattan. Amazing.
We still need to take a bus to get to the starting point. Took a while and turned here and there.
Finally, the Start Village.
The power bars, mineral water, coffee from Dunkin Donuts and hot tea were free for all. It is like an all-you-can-eat buffet kind of thing but of course, a serious runner won’t do that.
