    I actually found your blog looking for race recaps on the NJM, as I am about 95% sure I’m going to sign up, and I see you are doing it again in 2016! Do you have any good insider tips for me? 😉 I am hoping (fingers crossed), to BQ, but I am pretty concerned about the wind! The race website doesn’t have any information up yet (or at least it didn’t a few days ago) about a host hotel or one closest to the Start. I’m in Montgomery County, PA — so not too far — but far enough that I wouldn’t want to make the commute on race morning. I’ve loved reading your entries, I have done several of the same races as you (Philly marathon 2x, Pittsburgh half), and it so fun to experience them through another runner’s perspective. I was signed up to do the Philly full again this year, but due to injury will be lucky to pull off the half (still holding out hope though). Good luck on all your upcoming races! 🙂

    • Hi. Thanks for your comment. I think the start times in 2016 are both Half and Full together. In prior years the Half started at 7am and the Full at 8.30am. Not sure if this will be the same. There is a large pavillion to stay warm inside.

      I work nearish the start area so I just found a hotel anout 20 minutes away in Freehold. Nothing remarkable…just a room (literally). I stayed at the Days Inn one year and a Red Roof Inn another year as I was only spending a few hours in the room and was looking to keep costs down. I would recommend staying overnight. Look around Freehold, NJ as it’s not too far away.

      With regards to the wind, that was really 2013 which it was a factor. The weather was good back in 2014. I think you’ll enjoy the race. Flat and fast. Good luck.

        Thank you Ian! I read a bunch of reviews that mentioned the wind so I was pretty worried about it, but glad to hear it was really just a specific year. I suppose, just like any race, you are always at the mercy of whatever weather gets thrown at you that day! I am hoping to find a hotel walking distance to start, as I am not familiar with the area it would be nice to not have to worry about traffic and parking 🙂 Hopefully they will make an announcement on that soon. This will be my first truly flat course, and I am definitely a “hill person” (as odd as that sounds), fingers crossed for good race day weather & a mild winter!
