june should be a busy month, not only in terms of races - but katie graduates from high school (and has her prom next week)! the month kicks off w/a pair of new race. the "ramble for boston" is this morning at van cortlandt park. it's a fundraising fun run that takes the place of the "riverside ramble." tomorrow is the "running goddess" 5k in katonah. it's a more inclusive version of the "women's distance festival" 5k around rockland lake in july. i posted about the "running goddess" yesterday.
next weekend kicks off on friday night, with "cook your buns" 3 miler at tod's point. this is one of my favorite run + food themed events! if katie didn't have her prom that weekend, i'd try to talk her into running it w/me :D as for the weekend itself, there's the mini 10k for women in central park. that's one that men can only watch - and cheer on the participants. it's also a nyrr team race. the next day is a new race, the "roots, rock and run" 5k in darien (not to be confused w/the "run the rock" 5k in bridgeport.
the following weekend kicks off the norwalk summer series, w/the 3 miler on saturday. but that's only the first half of the day because the new canaan mile is that night. if i wake up w/any zip in my legs the next morning, i'll head over to rowayton for the father's day fun run :D
then is a mid-week roadtrip to new paltz for the summer solstice 14k - one of my favorite races. it's a long drive, but well worth it. especially if we rehydrate at the gilded otter afterwards : D i'll try to recover that weekend w/the "greenburgh mile" :D
the last weekend of the month will have the second norwalk summer series race, the 5 miler. the "greater new york city" 100 miler is also that weekend - but not sure if i'm recovered enough to dip back into ultras - at least not 100 milers!
here's how it looks so far:
6/1 - ramble for boston 5k (or 10k)
6/2 - running goddess 5k
6/7 - cook your buns 3 miler
6/9 - roots, rock and run 5k
6/15 - norwalk summer series, 3m
6/15 - new canaan mile
6/19 - summer solstice 14k
6/22 - greenburgh mile'
6/29 - norwalk summer series, 5m
this may see some additions because there are plenty of waveny summer xc series, vctc summer xc series and westport summer series races in june :D
as always, if you're at any of these events - say hello!
