may looked as is if it would kick off with a rest week. i had though about the long island marathon, but running sybil last weekend made me reconsider heading to long island for a full marathon. instead i would probably run a local 5k - until... i came across the riverdale y half marathon on sunday! there's a strong chance i'll line up for that race.
otherwise, may is all about the brooklyn half marathon 2 weeks later. i love this race and, despite the logistical hassles, is one i always look forward to running. it's also the 2nd race in the 5 boro challenge.
the week before also kicks off with a nyrr race - the healthly kidney 10k. it's the first of a pair of 10k's, with the norwalk mother's day 10k the next day. normally i'd stick with the norwalk 10k - and skip the nyrr 10k. but, since i need to get some points toward the 2015 nyc marathon, going to double up that weekend.
memorial day weekend is all about running the 50th anniversary of the jim fixx 5 miler. it's a tough course, but a lot of fun to run. i may squeeze in another race that weekend (the weston 5k) - but haven't firmed up those plans.
may has half a weekend left this month. not sure if i'll race on saturday (may) or sunday (june) - so that one is still open.
here's how it looks so far:
5/4 - riverdale y half marathon
5/10 - nyrr healthy kidney 10k
5/11 - norwalk mother's day 10k
5/17 - brooklyn half marathon
5/26 - jim fixx 5 miler
as always, if you're at any of these races - say hello!
