july kicks off with the taconic road runner's putnam county classic on the 4th of july. for the last few years the race has sponsored by the world lung foundation. so before the annual hot dog eating championships at nathon's famous in coney island that afternoon, plan to get in a challenging 8 mile run around lake mahopac!
if possible, i may head over to van cortandt park the night before to run the vctc summer xc series relay. last year both races were on the same day - july 4th fell on a thursday. do well at the relay and bring home a carrot cake cupcake :D
on saturday it's back to westport for the summer series 5k - which starts and finishes at longshore country club (instead of the staples track). the rest of the month includes more summer series races in norwalk and westport: the nowalk 5 miler, westport 4.1 miler, and norwalk 7 miler.
last but not least is the escarpment trail run to end the month. escarpment is one of my all time favorite race - and probably one of the most challenging! this will be my 5th time lining up to climb the wall of manitou :D
