my october race schedule will have a big "no-race" gap in the middle of the month because i'll
be traveling to bangkok and miss out on the weekends of 10/9 and 10/16. some great races on those weekends, but i'm sure i find ways to log some miles abroad :D
this weekend, however, i'm jumping into the putnam county fall classic half marathon in brewster. this is a local half marathon that i've yet to run. i had looked at greta's great gallop on saturday, but i have some family obigations that made that one to impracticable. another new race for me will be the sleepy hollow 10k (which seems to be a revival of old sleepy hollow 5k race from a few years ago).
the month ends with one of my favorite doubles: a pair of halloween 5ks. the morning kicks off in wilton with the halloween hustle and ends that afternoon in new canaan with the police pumkin chase. last year was the first time in years the races weren't held on the same day! in fact, wilton pushed its race back to november - and it conflicted with the nyc marathon. glad to see they're back on the same page :D
i may try to get in another race or two but, for now, this is how it looks:
10/3 - putnam county fall classic half marathon
10/23 - sleepy hollow 10k
10/31 - wilton halloween hustle 5k
10/31 - new canaan police pumpkin chase 5k
as always, if you're at any of them, say hi!
