a new running year has gotten underway! the first "race" of 2012 was a 5k fun run, the dash and splash, held at compo beach yesterday. i only did the dash - opting to keep myself dry while some runners joined a bunch of polar bears and dived into the water for a quick new year's day swim :O
the rest of january will be a more traditional race schedule - with the boston build-up kicking off this weekend with the 10k in norwalk. but, in a repeat of last year, i'll do the mid-hudson road runner's "recover from the holidays" fa 50k. and that may include some dehydration at the hyde park brewing company.
the following weekend, 1/14-15, doesn't have anything on the schedule. but not for lack of trying, i just couldn't find a race to run! but the manhattan half is on deck for the following weekend (a race missed last year because i was in singapore). the following day is the second race in the boston build-up series, the 15k in ridgefield.
for the last weekend in january it's a return to prospect park (last visited in november for the brooklyn marathon) for a new race, the brooklyn hot chocolate 10k. that may be cold, but it should be fun - especially since we only need to run the north hills twice :D
here's what it looks like so far:
1/1 - dash and splash 5k fun run
1/7 - mhrrc "recover from the holidays" fa 50k
1/8 - boston build-up 10k
1/21 - manhattan half marathon
1/22 - boston build-up 15k
1/28 - brooklyn hot chocolate 10k
as always, if you're at any of them, say hello!
