after a month that included a pair of marathons and a 50k, june will be a month of shorter distances - for the most part. one caveat: if we can put together a summer version of the "run around manhattan" at the end of the month, june goes out with a fa ultra!
this weekend kicks off with the nyrr israel run. it'll be race #5 on my road to nine. that will be followed up with a pair of fantastic 3 milers. the "cook your buns" 3 miler is a friday night race that ends with a barbecue. it's a race i've often run with katie - and, hopefully, she'll be at this one too. the norwalk summer series 3 miler - which kicks off the 2011 summer series is the following weekend.
something new, for me, is a road trip up to adams, ma, for the mt. greylock trail races. it's a half marathon+ run up and back down mt. greylock! since one good road trip deserves another, the summer solstice 15k at minnewaska state park in new paltz, ny, is later that week.
the last weekend is still open. if plans for a summer version of the "run around manhattan" don't pan out, there are a few good races that weekend. stay tuned.
here's how it looks so far:
6/5 - celebrate israel run, 4m
6/10 - "cook your buns," 3m
6/18 - norwalk summer series, 3m
6/19 - mt. greylock trail races, 13.5m
6/22 - summer solstice 15k
as always, if you're at any of these races, say hello!
