september 2014 race schedule

my september kicked off yesterday with a road trip up to new haven for the 20k - in what turned out to be a repeat of the 2013 new haven road race!  the rest of the month has only two real definites on the calendar - the norwalk half marathon in two weeks and the nyrr bronx 10 miler at the end of the month.

the half will give me 5 races out of a possible 6, for the norwalk summer series.  it's been a few years (b/c of conflicts, travel and/or injuries) since i managed to accumulate that many finishes at the series. that, in itself, is an accomplishment :D

as for the 10 miler, it will be the 4th out of 5 race toward the 2014 grand prix series.  with that (and the staten island half) i hope to complete the series for the 2nd year in a row.  it would be only the 3rd time in 14 years that i've managed to run all 5 borough races in a given year!

i've penciled in the fall distance frolic 30k in between those two - it's another race that i haven't done in few years, but one of my favorites - and the tuckahoe challenge the day after the norwalk half.  but i'm not 100% sure about either one of those events.  i many skip tuckahoe in favor of a rest day depending on how the half goes. and i many opt for a race closer to home rather than drive up to stratford for the 30k. we'll see.

and as for next weekend - that one is still open (although i'm looking at the south nyack 10 miler).  stay tuned!

here's how it looks so far:

9/1 new haven 20k
9/13 - norwalk half marathon
9/14 - tuckahoe challenge, 1m
9/14 - tuckahoe challenge, 5m
9/21 - fall distance frolic, 30k
9/28 - nyrr bronx 10 miler

as always, if you're at any of them - say hello!
