#77 Stamford: Give a Child a Jump Start 5K

At this point, I’ve take taken care of nearly everything between New Haven in the New York line, but Stamford and Greenwich, my old stomping grounds, remain. Today’s Labor Day race, at the JCC of Stamford, was very well attended and obviously a big community event. It was a warm day; I’d have preferred it start at 8:00, because by the time I got there at 8:30 for the 9:00 am start, it was definitely starting to get steamy. For the first time in many races I’ve run, the organizers had us grab a chip separate from the bib to strap on our ankle. That used to be the norm, but I haven’t seen it in ages. It’s funny how you forget about these things. A nice race, and it always feels good to run the 5K while there’s also a 10K going on that you don’t have to run.
