September 2016 Race Schedule

This month kicks off with the NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile on Saturday.  It will my 8th NYRR race of 2016 (and my 6th of the Summer + the volunteer requirement)!  Unfortunately, will miss the final race of the Westport Summer Series - the 10 Miler.  But will make back the mileage and then some the following weekend.

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!
