Meet our new members
Jim Vittor:
I am 59 years old, and I found running in my 50’s. I am mostly a 5K runner. I am slow and steady. I'm generally at the back of the pack, but I now can run a full 5K without stopping.
I have been as low as 34:00 minutes, but now I’m more of a late 30’s steady jogger. I run for health, for fresh air, and to challenge myself as I approach 60 years old and beyond.
I am a CFO for a mid-sized Insulation Contractor in NJ. A graduate of Rutgers University. I have coached youth soccer for the past 20+ years in my town.
I am married. I have four children. My best friend, with whom I run, and I have a goal to run at least one race per month in 2020. Also, I would like to lower my mile time to 11:00 minutes .

The Thursday group run starts in either Belmar or Asbury Park depending on the time of year. We currently meet at Convention Hall in Asbury Park. We usually run 4-6 miles on the well-lit boardwalk which is a very safe place to run. Occasionally some will extend the run for 8 miles. We have a steady group comprising all paces & experience levels. All paces are welcome.
We usually go out to dinner afterward, so bring your appetite!

Meet at the Middletown Little League Clubhouse Market Street, Middletown. Groups run from 6 to 22 miles mostly on trails through Hartshorne Woods Park, Huber Woods and surrounding areas.

The distance is six miles and start time is variable. 
We need people to help with this long-standing group run.
