november 2010 race schedule

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.

I hope to see you at the NYC (assuming that's possible, given the 42,000 or so other starters).

And best of luck at the JFK (I tried it last year before being "involuntary DNF'd" at mile 27...)
