today i picked up my bid and tee shirt for the scotland run 10k on sunday. it's only my second nyrr club race of the year. typically, i'd have run about 4-5 by this time of the year. i'm also scheduled to volunteer at packet pick-up for the run for the parks race next week.
i'm not sure what the weather forecast is for sunday, but the nyrr included a poncho among the goodies in the canvas bag that was handed out with the tee shirts. in addition to the poncho, a wool cap was tucked in there. the cynic in me would think they were preparing us for wet and cold conditions! that's not too much of a stretch given the weather we've had these last few days.
interestingly, the course runs clockwise around the park. it's one of the few races that does the loop in that direction (the healthy kidney 10k, mini 10k, and first half of the nyc marathon also run clockwise). should make for an interesting change of pace (excuse the pun) :D
as always, if you're at this one - say hello!
