5 Bridges, One Way, Lots of Ups and Downs

The other day, got a chance to do one of the funner running routes I've done in a while - hitting the bridges of Brooklyn (twice), Manhattan, Williamsburg, Pulaski and Queensboro - in a one-way route that totaled about 14 miles. The one I've mapped below started from Grand Army Plaza, though obviously you can start from anywhere and experiment. Note the route I offer includes a couple of short cuts - go from bridge to bridge in your own way.

The nice thing about it is that you get to hit Queensboro within a couple of miles of the time you would during the New York Marathon, which at least simulates some of the pain and fatigue you might be feeling at that point in time.
