The usual excitement abounded this morning as the NEWRO Runners prepared for the Third Annual North Avenue Mile Race. The weather was great, there were over 300 entrants, and as usual, it was very well organized. I have long ago put aside my racing shoes, but I have to admit the energy at these events, truly wants you (me!) to race one last time.
Montefiore Hospital and Stop & Shop were sponsors this year, and they were given the appropriate credit by the race announcer. The race started at North Avenue and Paine Avenue, and ended at City Hall where the racers were greeted by treats, awards and the many fans!
New Rochelle is GREAT!
