To honor the 15th Anniversary of 9/11, a few runners (including me) do the Run Around Manhattan 50k loop. Mat, who started this event a few years ago is putting it together. It will be run on the 10th (Saturday), which lets me run the Paine to Pain course check the following day :D
The following weekend is the Norwalk Summer Series Finale, the Half Marathon. It's one of my favorite races - and really looking forward to it because I could only run one Summer Series race this year. The following day, if I have anything left in the tank, will run the Tuckahoe Challenge. Have done this one many times - but in a first, the 5 Miler has been cut down to a 5K! Should be interesting.
The month closes out with the Paine to Pain Half. Also looking forward to this one. It's a great course - literally hiding in plain site in my backyard! Ran it last year (and the Course Check the year before that). In addition to the fantastic course - pretty excellent post-race party too!
Here's how it looks so far:
9/3 - NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile
9/10 - Run Around Manhattan 9/11 Memorial Run
9/11 - Paine to Paine Half Marathon Course Check
9/17 - Norwalk Half Marathon
9/18 - Tuckahoe Challenge 1M + 5K
9/25 - Paine to Paine Half Marathon
As always, if you're at any of them - say hello!
