Broad Street Run – Race Report

The Broad Street Run is the last of the classic Philadelphia races. It is a 10 mile race that runs, as the name indicates, straight down Broad Street. It has also become the biggest race in Philadelphia with over 40,000 runners thus making it a bucket list race for many. With such a large field […]

The 2014 Boston Marathon!

It is hard to believe but the 2014 Boston Marathon has come and gone.  What a great weekend it was!   The weekend started out on a down note as the train from Trenton NJ, to Boston was delayed over three hours.  Rather than wait we made the decision to get our money back for […]

Maccabiah Games Half Marathon – Race Report

I have mixed emotions as I write up this race report. The course was brutal and all the times were slow. Most all of Maccabi USA’s team was 5-10 minutes (or more) slower than their anticipated time. The course was all hilly with some of significant length. There was no break from either climbing or […]
