it seems like December actually kicked off yesterday, with the 5k turkey trot in greenwich. otherwise, no race for me today, this first day of december. next weekend is another 5k, up in trumble, the jingle bell jog.
the two main races for december follow are the roxbury marathon and the norfolk pub 10 miler. the roxbury marathon conflicts with the taconic road runners post-ted corbitt 15k holiday get together in the bronx. but i've already registered for roxbury - and it's a bit of unfinished business given my poor showing last year - so i'll miss the 15k/post-race get together this time around.
december wouldn't be complete without the fairfield holiday run 5k. this race doubles as a toy collection for children under 16 and race entry includes dropping off an unwrapped toy for kids under 16. coming the day after Roxbury, this one will be a fun run for me.
i've said many times in the past, the norfolk pub 10 miler is one of my favorite races - at any distance. it's hard to look forward to a trip up to the "icebox" of connecticut - as the town is billed. but the post-race festivities (including beer) more than make up for the typically frigid weather conditions :D
here's how it looks so far:
12/7 - nia jingle bell jog 5k
12/14 - roxbury marathon
12/15 - holiday run for toys 5k
12/21 - norfolk pub 10 miler
as always, if you're at any of these races - say hello!
