Lots of people have been askin’ me about the half-marathon on 4/22 and, more specifically, where people can watch Nancy, Martin, Brian and myself and cheer us on.  First and foremost – that is humbling… and effin’ awesome.  So a HUGE ‘Thank You!’ from the four of us to all of you for even considering coming out.

That being said, I wanted to do a quick post on here that had all of the details so everyone could have 1 place to get all the important links, directions, maps, etc.  Here’s the vitals:
NAME: Unite Half Marathon ( –> OFFICIAL WEBSITE <–)
LOCATION – Rutgers University – starts on Busch campus, goes onto the Livingston campus and ends up on College Ave.
START TIME: 8:00 AM
BIB #’s:
Gach – 4133
Nancy – 4120
Martin – 676
Reilly – 3898
RUNNERS PACE: We plan on running at around a 13 minute/ mile pace in ideal conditions (which the current weather conditions are NOT calling for).  So as long as none of y’all are THIS lovely brain surgeon:
this means we will be at mile post 1 around 13 minutes after we start*, mile post 2 around 26 minutes after we start*, etc. This is important to know because then you can figure out around what time we’ll be hitting the Spectator Areas (and what time you should be where you wanna be).
(*: ‘we start’ – we’re not gonna be the first people out of the gate at 8a so don’t expect us at 8:13a on the 1st mile, then leave b/c you thought you missed us!)
Speaking of Spectator Areas; I have this handy, dandy little map for y’all  –> CLICK HERE FOR SPECTATOR MAP <– and it shows you exactly where all of the spectator areas are and will help you kinda figure out how to get from area to area if you wanna go to multiple locations.  Big thing to know as well:  THERE WILL BE SHUTTLE SERVICE TO DIFFERENT AREAS!  So, if ya wanna be at mile 4, then get to the Finish line?  You can do that via the shuttle service. As for the specific details of the shuttles (times, places, etc.) that info is not available yet, but if it is made available before race day it will be posted here. 
Now, even though they encourage the use of the shuttles, if you would like to walk you can also be at the start and finish lines by using THIS handy, dandy little map –> CLICK HERE FOR WALKING MAP <– and you’ll see it would take you about 25 minutes to get from both locations.
Oh… one last handy, dandy map –> CLICK HERE FOR RUNNING COURSE MAP <– Here’s why this map could be useful to you… just follow the arrows from the starting point and you’ll see there are several spots we go by TWICE – so you can be in 1 spot and see us coming… and going!
POST RACE:  After the race you will probably find us here:
wearing these:
But for now, that’s all the info I have.  If you have ANY QUESTIONS, post them here – or hit me up on Facebook or Twitter.
