may 2012 race schedule

the may schedule had originally included 3 nyrr races, but a conflict has cut that number down to just two: the japan day 4 miler and the brooklyn half marathon. i had registered for the healthy kidney 10k, but my nephew's first communion is on that day - so i'll be in church, not central park, that morning.

the month kicks off this weekend with the long island marathon.  i've run this one before (2009) and missed a bq by just a few seconds!  my goal, on the ambitious side given my training, is a 3:30 to bq.  we'll see how it turns out.  on the downside, it conflicts with one of my favorite races, the law day 5k in darien.

i haven't settled on a race for the memorial day weekend.  last year we had the memorial day marathon in van cortlandt park.  but since the free holiday marathon series seems to have gone kaput, i'll need to find another long race to run that weekend.  as it stands, i'll probably head over to greenwich for the jim fixx 5 miler on memorial day - another great race.

here's how it looks so far:

5/6 - long island marathon
5/13 - japan day 4 miler
5/19 - brooklyn half marathon
5/28 - jim fixx 5 miler

as always, if you're at any of them, say hello!
