I ran the 2018 New Jersey Half Marathon this weekend and, just like last year, it was the best! By the numbers: I finished in 1:58.33, which is a 9:03 minute per mile pace. I made two bathroom stops, saw at […]

New Jersey Half Marathon Recap

Date: April 30, 2017 at 9:34 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 15

I ran the New Jersey Half Marathon this weekend and it was great. At least, that’s how I feel about it 10 hours later. I’m all runner’s high-ed now (and exhausted and delirious and insatiably hungry), but the race was actually tough at times. […]
