we got a serious preview of the dog days of summer last weekend. hopefully that high heat and humidity won't settle in for june (dealing with it in july and august is tough enough). while i don't normally send much time thinking about the weather... i have a hundred miler on deck at the end of the month. the nyc 100 is the highlight for june. but if we had last weekend's conditions during the weekend of 23-24 june, finishing this one would be a challenge!
no races for me this weekend. i'll be in syracuse, where katie will be playing some field hockey on sunday. instead, my first race of the month will be an old favorite - "cook your buns" 3 miler next friday night. any event that has a post-race bbq is one i'll try hard not to miss :O
that weekend will also be a return to the litchfield hill 7 miler on sunday. it's a race i ran for the first time last summer. this year, i hear, they've switched from cotton tees to tech shirts. the following weekend kicks off the norwalk summer series. the 3 miler is on saturday and two weeks later, on the 30th, is the 5 miler.
another favorite which i've tentatively pencilled in is the summer solstice 15k in new paltz. it's a evening, midweek race, that celebrates the summer solstice. my only hesitancy to commit is the long drive up (and the equally long drive home afterwards). it's definitely a carpool race :D
here's how it looks so far:
6/8 - cook you buns, 3m
6/10 - litchfield hills, 7m
6/16 - norwalk summer series, 3m
6/20 - summer solstice, 15k
6/23 - nyc 100 miler
6/30 - norwalk summer series, 5m
as always, if you're at any of them - say hello!
