it's hard to believe 2012 is now in its last month! in a twist, i kicked off the december race schedule with the join the voices 5 miler in central park this morning - typically, my last nyrr race is the the nyc marathon. afterwards it was off to the bronx for the trrc post-race brunch at the rambling house :D
next weekend is the roxbury marathon. this one has been on my "to do" list for years. hopefully, the day after i'll have a enough left in the tank to run the jingle bell jog in greenwich the next morning! i haven't done that race in almost a decade - and probably would have skipped it again this year if the trrc couples relay hadn't been pushed back a week.
mid-december is a road trip up to norfolk for the 10 miler. this race is on my short list of all time favorites (at any distance). aside from the challenging course, your bib tag is generally good for a drink at the pub. norfolk bills itself as the "icebox of connectictu" - brrr! the next day is the rescheduled couples relay in peekskill. as a consequence, i'll have to miss another holiday favorite - the run for toys in fairfield.
december will end on a long run - the newly minted broadway ultra society queens 50k (or 30k). my plan is to run the 50k - but i may drop down to the 30k. taking a wait and see on this on.
here's how it looks so far:
12/2 - join the voices 5 miler
12/8 - roxbury marathon
12/9 - jingle bell jog, 3m
12/15 - norfolk pub 10 miler
12/16 - trrc couples relay
12/22 - b.u.s. queens 50k
as always, if you're at any of them, say hello!
