a pair of halloween races this weekend

i didn't plan on any races for this weekend because i had been scheduled to leave for another business trip. now that my travel plans have changed, i get add a pair of halloween 5ks on sunday. in what's become something of a tradition, i've done the wilton halloween hustle 5k in the morning, then went back to new canaan for the police pumpkin chase 5k in the afternoon. both races are on fun, scenic courses - and have great tee shirts too boot!

in the last couple of years katie and i would run the morning race in wilton together. i'm not sure she'll make it there this weekend because of church school. but, she did fill in for me and run our neighborhood fall foliage 5k this past sunday afternoon (with her good friend, annalise). instead of the wilton 5k, we'll probably run the beachfront bushwack 5 miler together next month.

in other news, i got my nyc marthon card in the mail while i was in paris. unfortunately for me, i have a green start. my least favorite place to start that race is on the lower level of the bridge. oh well, as they say, c'est la vie! it's still going to be a great time!

You do not HAVE TO run on the lower level of the Verrazano if you don't want to.
