august race schedule update

i just posted a quick update to my race schedule for august. after today's 12 hour race in queens, the rest of the month will be a return to shorter distances. but the most notable addition to the schedule is the trrc biathlon, a 3 mile run followed by a half mile swim. i hope to run/swim both portions depending on today's outcome, or i may just do the run portion as part of a relay. stay tuned for that one.

the other notable item is a switch from the nyrr team championship 5 miler, to the norwalk (lightfoot) summer series 11 miler. with last month's park to park 10k, i now have 8 nyrr scored races and the nyc marathon will, hopefully, be my ninth (if i don't reach that magic number sooner, with races in september and october).

but the highlight of my august race schedule is undoubtedly the catskill mountain 100k relay! our team consists of emmy, myriam, pam, don, and me! each of us will run 2 separate 10k legs for a total of 20k mileage per runner. this should be a lot of fun, and i'll post more on this one in the future!

last but not least, have added a westport summer series race (and maybe will fit in a second at the end of the month). in past years i've only run the labor ten miler, which closes out the series. while i've run in westport many times in the past, the upcoming 6.85 miler will be, interestingly, my n0n-10 miler in the series!

Sounds like a great month. Looking forward to the relay. Didn't know you were aiming to do the NYC Marathon this year. Guess I can't hit you up for pacing me from 18-26! :) Guess I'll have to find some other friendly face to help me get through it! Hope all went well for you today. Good luck tomorrow.

looking forward to the relay! It is going to be a lot of fun. Bringing any of that Zinfandel dark water you drink?

pam, will definitely run a few miles of nycm w/you - assuming we can find each other in that sea of running humanity :D

myriam, will definitely bring adult beverages for post-race. but may wind up being beer instead of wine :(
