Race Report: Team Never End the Fight at the USR 5K

It's been awhile since we heard from Justin Macaluso and his team of runners, Never End the Fight.  Thanksgiving Day would provide the team with a chance to race together at a local, popular 5K Turkey Trot in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey.  Here is a quick recap of the race by Justin.

Thanksgiving morning, Never End the Fight was back at it for the second year in a row at a large, local 5K.

The race, formally known as the Dick Meighan Memorial 5K Run, is now called the Upper Saddle River 5K.  The race was in Upper Saddle River at Cavellini School.  There were just about 2000 runners this year.  It was great weather to run in, with the temperature at around 40 degrees with no wind.  The course certainly proved to be difficult with multiple hills along the way.  The race starts with about a third of the mile on a long uphill incline.  Team Never End the Fight was 5 strong in Upper Saddle River with myself, my father, William Rice and Steve Greenblatt and his wife Gere Ann Waters all on the course. 

As a team, Never End The Fight took 21st out of 69 teams with an average time of 25:29. Individual times are listed below.

Justin--  20:42
85th overall and 15th out of 78 in age group

William--  25:33
355th overall and 16th out of 41 in age group
