This past Sunday I got to run one of my favorite races. I think its my favorite mainly because its in the Bronx, and I’m from the Bronx! I think this is my 3rd or 4th Bronx 10 mile. I try to do it every year, but it always falls on my anniversary weekend. Luckily this year I didn’t have a trip planned, so the Bronx 10 mile it was!
Looking back on previous years, this years time was really the pits! Granted I am certainly not as fast as I use to be, so my times have really taken a dive, but I hadn’t realized that it had gotten this bad! Another granted, I really wasn’t attempting to run this race fast, but was instead treating it like another marathon training run. I did a 3:1 run walk miles 2-9. Run walking has really helped me to stay healthy, and get through my double digit runs without feeling like death warmed over. So while I was 16 minutes slower than the last time, I’m happy with this time because I did what I needed to do, and finished in under 2 hrs.

Oh, another goodie about this race is we run by my Alma mater Dewitt Clinton High School. Every-time I have the opportunity to see my old High School in person, it brings a smile to my face because I had so many good memories there. Fun fact: Stan Lee, the creator of X-Men, Ralph Lauren, and even Tracy Morgan all graduated from Clinton High School, and so did I! lol.
All in all, still one of my favs, and I hope I can do it again next year. This weekend I am off to Atlanta to run The Race, it should be a jam packed weekend. I’ll be documenting the entire weekend on video, and will have my full race report next week.
