New York City Marathon 26.2 mi 03:36 08:14 pace

I was hitting great splits until mile 16. At that point in the race I was making my way up Queensboro bridge when I began cramping up. After this incline all consecutive ascents was torture on both my legs. I was no longer able to fully bend my knee for my kick. From mile 20-Finish I had to resort run/walk otherwise my finish time would have been quite different. As always very content with my performance. New York City Marathon was quite the experience indeed.

    Congrats Alex. 3:36 is a great time! The Queensboro bridge is brutal on the legs - it's amazing that you toughed it out in the conditions.

    Wow! Run/Walk the last 6mi and still 3:36. Nice job dude!!
    Have you ever qualified for Boston. Seems like you could pic a race and "easily" make the time...provided you don't cramp and have to walk!
