june includes a return to norwalk and westport for their respective summer series. norwalk kicks off with the 3 miler in two weeks (6/14) and westport starts off with the 2.3 miler at the end of the month (6/28). the waveny park xc series in new canaan and the van cortandt track club summer series, tueday and thursday nights respectively, kicked off last month.
and the first week of june includes national running day on wednesday - and a week earlier than it's normally run, the cook your buns 3 miler in greenwich on friday night. the best park of cook your buns - aside from the fun of running at todd's point, is the post-race bbq :D
june also includes the nyrr queens 10k. it'll be my 5th race of the 9+1 for the 2015 nyc marathon. it's also race #3 of the 5 boro grand prix series. at only 10k, it's the shortest distance of the 5 races. the course is flat, which offsets the typically hot weather conditions it's run in.
i'm penciling in the summer solstice 14k trail run on wednesday night june 18. this is not only one of my favorite races - but minnewaska state park is one of my all-time favorite places to run. but, as always, getting up to this race mid-week can be a logistical challenge for me. hopefully i'll be able to make the trip up there for it.
here's how it looks so far:
6/6 - cook your buns 3m
6/14 - norwalk summer series, 3m
6/18 - summer solstice 14k trail run
6/22 - nyrr queens 10k
6/28 - westport summer series, 2.3m
as always, if you're at any of them, say hello!
