There are a number of marathons happening soon in New York City, which comes as great news for those who absolutely thrive on a runner's high and the thrill of competition. However, even those who aren't physically fit can participate in the festivities and make a fun outing of the events.
With the warm weather comes renewed fitness resolutions and a fresh desire to be outdoors. So, will this be the season you lace up those dusty sneakers? If so, you won't be alone.
This weekend, 10,000 runners and spectators will gather at Central Park to pound the pavement in The More Magazine/Fitness Magazine Women’s Half-Marathon, celebrating its 10th Anniversary.
But if you didn't register in time, no worries. There are plenty of other great runs being held this spring. Here are six that take you to interesting places in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.
