Secaucus HS Class of 2006 Grad / XC Runner and former Assistant Coach Melissa (DeFino) Podeia ran in the May 1, 2016 NJ Marathon.

Time: 5: 07.05 / 675 out of 797 women

Was her first marathon experience. She texted me after the race and said:

” At mile 23, when I had about a 5k left, I thought to myself, why did I ever complain about the length of a XC race.”
