It was a last minute decision, but I decided to run this year’s Crossroads of New Jersey in Woodbridge 5K/10K. This race is also part of my training for next month’s Staten Island Half Marathon.
This is the third year in a row I ran this event. Two years ago, I was placed first in my age group for the 10K. Last year, I wanted to do another 10K, but decided last minute to stop at 3.1 miles due to my lack of training.
For this year, I got 2nd place in my age group for the 10K (pace: 10:35 min/mile), which was very unexpected. What a wonderful highlight for Labor Day weekend!
