The thing starts at 7:30am on the other side of the Subway and I met a friend at 5:20 am to make the trip. I rode the subway on autopilot till it was time to get off. I knew that we had to get off at the last stop in Manhattan. Somewhere North of 125th St I looked at the list of stations.
Here is a screenshot of the MTA list of 1 Train stops. Both 225th St and 207th St seam to be connected (and in Manhattan)
Wikipedia. The border of Manhattan follows the old path of the Harlem River.

and to totally make things more confusing the 225th St Subway Station is actually on the bridge that crosses the Harlem River.
So if I ever do "The Manhattan Training Run" again I am going to walk over the Broadway Bridge so I can actually run the western length of Manhattan.
and I wonder if there are any real world implications to this border anomaly. Does the Manhattan Borough President Really care about the residents of Marble Hill?. (Does the Brooklyn Borough President really care about the residents of Brooklyn?). Other voting issues?
Bronx's 50th Precinct. But does the Manhattan DA, prosecute those crimes?
More on that later when I take a close look at the border between Brooklyn and Manhattan//
