The weather cooperated for the second week of the Jersey Shore Running Club’s Summer Series held on Thursday, July 28, 2011 at the Wall Municipal Complex in Wall Township, NJ. The series had to be cancelled the previous wek due to the high temperatures and humidity.
With an overcast sky and a slight drizzle before the start it was somewhat of a releif for the runners although the humidity was still on the high side making getting a good rythm somewhat of a challenge for some.
But it was not a challenge for the winners who put in some really fast times. For the men it was Matt Simpson in a time of 17:18. He was followed very close behind by Amanda Marino in a time of 17:24. Amanda’s time may be a record for the 5K course for the summer series.
