Paine to Pain Trail Half Marathon RECAP

Well, that’s done. And so are my feet. The stones! The stones! My biannual visit to New Rochelle for this race is always special. From the 200-year-old musket firing to start each wave to the immediate hill you climb to get to the trailhead to the constantly changing terrain. Five beautiful parks await you as […]
