Oh, the Brooklyn Half-Marathon.

The what?

Sigh.

Well, even if you didn't know that the 13.1 mile half-marathon from Coney Island to Prospect Park existed, 3999 other people (2352 men and 1647 women) not only did but managed to run the whole thing yesterday. 23-year-old Felipe Garcia was the overall male winner with a time of 1:10:22. 35-year-old Edie Perkins took the overall female title with a time of 1:23:44. You can find more results here.
