JPM Chase Corporate Challenge 2009

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

The 28th annual JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge
race took place a couple of days ago May 21. Participation was down from the
record of 23,000 runners set last year
at around 17,125. With splendid weather, it is always a nice way to start the
Memorial day weekend.

We fielded a small but spirited
team of nine runners. I finished with a decent (hand-stopped) time of 22
minutes and 27.93 seconds for the 3.5 miles — or a 6:25 min/mile pace. That
is among the fasters times but not quite the fastest
I have run this.

Most importantly, everybody seems to have had a blast. And we did set a
record for longer post-race party which sets a nice precedent for 2010.
