october 2012 race schedule

the month of october kicks off with return trip to ridgefield for the half marathon on sunday.  i ran this one last year, for the first time, and enjoyed the course.  hopefully, the rain forecast for sunday will hold off until the afternoon.

the following weekend is one of my favorite point to point courses, the great train race.  the rolling, hilly course is just under 7 miles - and, if tradition is any guide, a bunch of us will run the course back to the start (and our cars at the new canaan train station parking lot) :D

the weekend of the 20th had the sullivan strider's inaugural bashakill 14 miler on the calendar.  but, unfortunately, the race was cancelled.  i'm still working on a plan b - but i'd thinking about the tri-state classic 10k in port jervis, ny.  i've never run that one before, so it would be a new race for me.

the month ends with a classic halloween double.  the wilton halloween hustle in the morning followed by the pumpkin chase in the afternoon (both are 5ks).  i've run them many times over the years (only one year in recent memory had the wilton race postponed a week and broke up the halloween themed double).

here's how it looks so far:

10/7 - ridgefield half marathon
10/14 - the great train race, 6.8m
10/21 - the tri-state classic, 10k
10/29 - wilton halloween hustle, 5k
10/29 - pumpkin chase, 5k

as always, if you're at any of them - say hello :D
