Steven Weiss of Plainview scored an age-group win in the Jonas Chiropractic Run Nassau Series Race No. 4 at Eisenhower Park.
The 36-year old Weiss, who runs for the New York Police Department Running Team, finished in 10th place overall in this four-mile event, and took top honors in the 35-39 age group. His time was 26:33, a pace of 6:38 minutes per mile.
Larry Kurtzman of Plainview was one of the co-directors of the series.
The Jonas Chiropractic Run Nassau Series was conducted under the auspices of the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums, with race management handled by the Greater Long Island Running Club. The series is designed as a lead-up to the RXR Long Island Marathon, and to give participants a taste of four of the outstanding Nassau County Parks—Nickerson Beach, Cedar Creek Park, Old Bethpage Restoration Village and of course, Eisenhower Park.
“We were thrilled to be able to make this series happen again this year,” Co-Director Larry Kurtzman said. “After being forced to postpone the Old Bethpage race because of the February snowstorm, the remainder of the series (including the rescheduled March 30 Old Bethpage Race) went off without any problems. Our congratulations to Race No. 4 local winners Steven Weiss and Bert Jablon, and our thanks to Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Nassau Parks Commissioner Carnell Foskey for supporting running and fitness in this way.”

The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) has frustrated commuters for years with it’s ridiculous fares, limited trains and constant problems, especially during the rush hour ride home.
Though the MTA is making an effort to add more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town.
