Pocono Marathon–May 17, 2015 by Mike Skara

Unpleasant. That is the best way to describe the Pocono Marathon this year. I did my job, hitting the line at 4:19:07, but I was accompanied only by my 4:20 pace sign. The weather was the biggest culprit, as the temps topped 80 degrees and a reported 65% humidity. The lack of shade on the more »

The race was very well organized, with easy packet pick-up at the start. Plenty of water, breakfast bars, and bananas at the post race table. Very convenient indoor more »

Boston Marathon–April 20, 2015, by Pia LoPresti

Jersey Strong Meets Boston Strong “Your greatest run ever” was the moto for the 2015 Boston Marathon. From the day I was able to register for the race back in September, to the acceptance e-mail and snail mail that I was an official participant, to all the B.A.A. updates leading up to the big weekend, more »
