It’s that time of the month…
I’d tell you that I only ran ONE race in July.
But I’m making up for it in August.
I signed up for FOUR (almost 5) this month.
- 08-03-19 – Hudson River Ramble (8 m)
- 08-14-19 – Al Goldstein 5k (in Brooklyn)
- 08-17-19 – Jailhouse Rock 5k
- 08-19-19 – Saratoga Track Mile
I have run them all before (except the one mile race). The Hudson Ramble is slightly different – used to be Race the Train (same course) but there is no longer a train.
I have a hair appt. on August 21 and will miss the the Hump Day 5k. 😦
Only two are on a weekend so it should not disrupt marathon training too much.
Do you run many races in the summer?
I’d tell you that I made the hotel reservation right away but finally made my flight reservations for my February race in Bermuda. I know it’s still early but flights are expensive and it was nerve racking trying to decide which days to go to take advantage of the cheaper prices.
Cari and I finally settled on leaving late Wed and returning early Monday. Four days and 5 nights in paradise!!!
Anyone else running this race? When will you be there? I’d love to meet up.
I’d tell you that (not running-related sorry) that my new kitty become more manageable. He goes outside all the time but he comes home when I call him.
I mean, I am marathon training, I don’t have time for his shenanigans. lol
Does you pet interfere with your running?
I’d tell you that I love my OLD Garmin 205.
People laugh when they see it but it’s great to be able to see all 4 screens of data on ONE screen.
I’m on my third one. The battery life eventually wears out and I order a new one.
Being that I will be running a full marathon that may take me 6 hours, I was nervous that my trusty Garmin battery may not last as long as my race.
So I ordered a (used) new one.
Anyone else have the 230? If so, do you like it?
I’d tell you that actually the one I ordered was white. I am cheap and didn’t want to pay more for the purple one. So I bought the white one and then bought a (cheap) purple band.
Does color matter to you? If so, what’s your favorite color?
