|Half Marathon State # 22
Half Marathon #40
On October 22, 2017, I did a back to back half marathon for State #22 in Atlantic City, New Jersey for the Atlantic City Half Marathon. The previous day I did the Monster Mash Half Marathon in Dover, Delaware. For this race, the weather was a little warmer, as the start was around 57 degrees and climbed to about 65 degrees at the finish, with humidity around 100 percent.
This would also be my 40th Half Marathon!
It took us about two hours to drive over from Dover, Delaware. We arrived in Atlantic City, New Jersey about 3pm. After checking into our hotel, the Courtyard Atlantic City, we walked to the Expo which was at Bally’s Casino Atlantic City which was less than a mile from the hotel. Going there we walked via the streets, and did not feel too comfortable walking in that area. On our return trip, we realized we could take the Boardwalk, and that felt a little more safe. Bally’s on the Boardwalk was where the race started/ended, so that was helpful for Sunday morning navigation as well.
