Re; NYCM... I took my best shot there in 2007 at age 56. I'd run a couple half marathons earlier that fall in the mid 1:20's and thought a 3;05 to 3;10 was a realistic goal come Nov.
Race Day... Alas, my quads were shot by 18 miles. I seriously considered walking it in or dropping out at 19. tylenol got me limping humbly home in just over 3:20. The bridges are a factor to reckon with. Be as road tough as you can get, and don't think a minimally cushioned shoe is the best choice.
All that said, I relished every second and still consider it the finest marathon I've been blessed to partake in, of the 57 I've run.
We went back last year to just to watch it. Grand spectacle IMHO.
