february 2013 race schedule

my february races kick off tomorrow with the gridiron 4 miler in central park.  it seems like i was there to run just yesterday, having done the manhattan half last sunday.  while it was a bit cold for the 2 loops of the park (20 degrees) last weekend, there may be a sprinkling of snow on the course tomorrow morning ;o

next weekend is a pair of favorites:  the sweetheart 4 miler and the third boston build-up race (20k) in fairfield.  as we've done many times in the past, emmy will be my partner for the tough 4 mile course in stratford - affectionately known as the sweetheart run.  the next day will be a tough 20k in fairfield.  i believe this is the 3rd year in fairfield (from its formerly southport home) for the relocated boston build-up 20k.  amazingly, this course may be easier than starting and finishing in southport!

the third week of february will be a return to the suny albany campus for the hmrrc winter marathon.  the weather for this race has never been nice - the best conditions have been just plain frigid temperatures (and no snow or precipitation).  but runners have such short memories - and i find myself going back again... and again :D

the last weekend is still up in the air.  i'd like to say the colchester half for sure. but i may do the polar bear run, 7.6 miles, the following day instead. that's one i haven't done in years. or maybe both :O

here's how it looks so far:

2/3 - gridiron 4 miler
2/9 - stratford sweetheart run
2/10 - boston build-up 20k
2/17 - hmrrc winter marathon
2/23 - colchester half marathon


2/24 - polar bear run

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