Tuesday's Treasures ~ Brooklyn Half Marathon ~ Personal Best time!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

I’m so proud of my granddaughter Hailey who ran the RBC Brooklyn Half Marathan this past weekend and made a personal best time! I love she embraces all that NYC has to offer! She’s been living in NYC the last 5 years and finds so many events to experience.

She ran the NYC Marathon a few years ago and applied to run in the Berlin Marathon this spring. Unfortunately, it’s a lottery system and she didn’t get chosen. She is applying again.

The half marathon was really fun as you can see from the map you end up in Coney Island! Hailey joined a running club and loves the support from the other runners and the coach.

Good morning Dorie. Congrats to your granddaughter for running a half marathon. With my bad knees I think some walking is great. May she continue her efforts! I am a bit jealous. Enjoy your day.

Good morning, Dorie... congratulations to Hailey! Being as much a native New Yorker as you can be without having been born there, I can attest to how much there is to experience in NYC. And I love it when people take advantage of so many options.

Wow, that is such an amazing accomplishment and one that I am sure I will never accomplish since I have no desire to run a race, haha.

Hailey likes to run Brian England and she is on a men's women's volleyball team. She has always been an athletic so glad she still is doing the sports she enjoys and enjoys it with others.

Dorie I don't think I could finish a half marathon race, BUT I would not have any problem finishing the hot dog in the photo.   🤣

That's an exciting accomplishment.  I never ran in a marathon, or half marathon.  I did participate in a charity WALK.  But, I couldn't complete it.  I only walked 12 miles.  I'm a swimmer!  That dry land stuff kills me!

Hi Dorie:

Congratulations to your granddaughter on her achievement and her personal best time. Hopefully she will be selected for the Berlin Marathon next time. Perhaps she will try for the Boston Marathon (I know you have to qualify).
