august will be a low-key racing month for me. most, if not all, of the races are short distances.
it kicks off with the nyrr club team championship on saturday (which will be race #7 on the road to 9), followed by the sgt. keith ferguson 5k - run over the brooklyn bridge - the next day. as a former brooklynite, i love the idea of running back and forth across the bridge :D
the middle of august will be back to back weekend in westport for summer series races. the 6.85 miler is on 8/13 and the 8.4 miler is on 8/20. in between is a tuesday night trip to new canaan for the wavney 3-person relay.
i may make a trip back to brooklyn for the "battle of brooklyn" 10 miler on 8/21 - still undecided about that one. it's a summer version of the cherry tree 10 miler :D
the month ends with the bronx half marathon - it'll be my 8th nyrr race for 2011. with the nyc marathon in november, that should give me my 9 races for guaranteed entry into the 2012 marathon.
here's what it looks like so far:
8/6 - nyrr team championshiops, 5m
8/7 - sgt. keith ferguson 5k
8/13 - westport summer series, 6.85m
8/16 - waveny summer xc series, 3-person relay
8/20 - westport summer series, 8.4m
8/28 - nyrr bronx half marathon
as always, if you're at any of them, say hello!
