Twain Runs Brooklyn Half Marathon
The race started near the Brooklyn Museum, went past the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and around Grand Army Plaza before entering Prospect Park. Then, after a loop around the park, runners headed onto Ocean Parkway toward Coney Island for the finish line at the boardwalk, just blocks from Mark Twain. Congratulations to all the participants, especially those associated with our school including our principal Karen Ditolla and my two computer teacher (yes you heard that right computer teacher / marathon runners) colleagues on the far right.
