Ron Bienstock
North Jersey Masters Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to an individual who has been a member for 20 or more years and has consistently served the club through volunteerism, committee membership and significantly furthered the mission and goals of the North Jersey Masters. This year’s recipient is Ronald Bienstock. We interviewed Ron and asked him some questions we were curious about. Click HERE to learn what Ron had to share.

Ridgewood Run

New running shoes make us look good, feel good, and are essential for running. But do they make us faster? Maybe, maybe not. Until now that is. Read more HERE about mechanical doping.
Let Your Mind Run: A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory by Deena Kastor is a must read! This book reminds us of the importance of positive thinking and how this type of mentality can give you a competitive boost.
