october kicks off with the ridgefield half marathon tomorrow morning. i haven't run this one before, so i'm looking forward to it. i'll follow it up w/another half marathon next weekend, the harvest half in red hook. it's also a new one for me - and the race director, lisa glick, is a friend.
shorter distances make up the rest of the month, as a lead in to the nyc marathon the first weekend of november. the great train race, one of my favorite local point to point courses, is on october 16. if i can get back in time for the noon start, it may turn into a double with the harry chapin "run against hunger" 10k that afternoon!
the following weekend, is a 5 miler on the trail, at "run the farm" in katonah. this is another new race for me - bring the total up to 3 for the month. the final weekend of october i typically run a great pair of halloween 5ks - but this year i have another business trip planned (the 3rd in two months), so no races that weekend.
here's what it looks like so far:
10/2 - ridgefield half marathon
10/9 - harvest half marathon
10/16 - great train race, 6.8m
10/16 - harry chapin run against hunger 10k
10/23 - run the farm, 5m
as always, if you're at any of them, say hello!
