If you're need of a distraction and a healthy way to channel your rage into something besides scrolling Twitter and feeling panicked, here's an idea: training for a half-marathon. Registration for the annual Airbnb Brooklyn Half opened today at noon, and you should sign up ASAP, as it's known to sell out same day.
The 13.1 mile race takes place on May 20. The route begins at Brooklyn Museum near Prospect Park and ends on the Coney Island boardwalk, where neighboring MCU Park hosts an after party with beer, food and music.
Here's what you need to know to register:
— Create your New York Roadrunners (NYRR) profile if you haven't; be sure your credit card info on file is up-to-date.
— For NYRR members, registering costs $80, non-members, $100.
