This race (and this race review) has been a long time coming. I got my race entry through the lottery for the 2020 race. Obviously, that 2020 race did not happen. The 50th race did happen in 2021, however, in 2021 foreigners were still not allowed to enter the US, so I didn’t get to run the 50th edition. The 2020 entry became a 2022 entry, for the 51st edition of the race. This wasn’t the first time I did the NYC Marathon, I also ran it in 2018, but it would be the first time that I’d run the same marathon twice.
