november kicks off with probably my favorite race (at any distance) - the nyc marathon. it will be my 9th consecutive one, on the road to the goal of 15 nyc marathons. then, a couple of weeks later, a return to the jfk 50 miler. i haven't run that one since 2007.
in between those two events, i'll be in berlin on a business trip. it's been 26 years since i traveled to berlin; and, in those days, it was a divided city. this is one trip that i'm really looking forward to because i get the chance to meet up with some old friends who still live there.
after jfk, a thanksgiving race is on deck. last year i ran the mid-hudson rr's 25k turkey trot. that was a fantastic event, and i'd like to go back. but the gateway gobbler, a 6 mile race in greenwich, ct, is much closer to home. i've run that one a few times over the years, and think i'll opt to run it this year. a couple of days later, the cow chip xc 5k, rounds out the month.
here's what the schedule looks like:
11/7 - nyc marathon
11/20 - jfk 50 mile run
11/26 - gateway gobbler, 6m
11/27 - cow chip xc 5k
as always, if you're at any of these races, say hello!
update: i changed the last couple of races (thanksgiving day and weekend) at the last minute. here are the details.
