I just got a text from two ex runners of mine. Like many men as they get north of 35, they are getting a little restless with life.. Everything new that there is to experience has almost been experienced and and putting food on the table isn't a challenge. Rather than have a midlife crisis and cheat on their spouses or blow $50k gambling, as they near middle age, they've decided it would be a good idea to run the NYC marathon, as they've never done that.
They've just texted me and asked if I could get them in.
Rather than try to pull strings, I thought I'd open it up to the forum. How hard is it to get into NYC? Can you get in via a charity or something or is it actually sold out?
Many thanks for your suggestions.
