Bronx 10 mile Finish-line

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.

This years splits 

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.

Of course I had to get a selfie in front of the school!

 

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.
