Amy Hastings Loves Going to Battle in the Marathon
Why do people run marathons? For some, it's because they want to justify their Gu diet or want something to brag about to friends. For other athletes like Amy Hastings, it's simply because they love it. Brooks athlete and U.S. Olympian Amy Hastings is bringing her love for the distance to NYC. Our math is a bit shabby, but halves are supposed to be two equal parts of a whole. The marathon isn't about math; it has its own rules. The first half of the marathon is 20 miles and the second half is the last 6.2.
