After 4 years, we finally got lucky and got awarded a slot for the 2018 TCS New York Marathon! After the race, I finally understood why people consider the New York Marathon as one of the best marathons in the world!
It was definitely a tough course, passing through the 5 boroughs and crossing multiple bridges in 9° weather. But experiencing how a city comes together to support the runners from start to finish gives this race a unique vibe with a truly unforgettable experience.
Watch the video for a short recap of what it is like to race the New York Marathon! Add this to your marathon bucket list!
