It’s that time of the month…
1. Over coffee…
I’d tell you that it has even been too hot this summer for me to join my running groups and run after work.
Yup, I became a sunrise runner.
What about you? Did the summer temps force you to see the sun rise?
I’d tell you that I did join the group trail runs each Thursday evening. But I’m too nervous to run on them. I (and my running friends) always brought up the rear and walked each one.
Do you run on trails often?
I’d tell you that so far I have been able to do more hiking since I have every other Monday off.
Have you been doing much hiking lately?
I’d tell you that I have NOT run a half marathon since May. Remember I ran 6 half marathons the first 5 months of the year.
Don’t worry. I signed up for THREE this fall!!
- Race 4 the River – Sept 3
- Maine – Oct 2
- Upstate Classic – Nov. 20
Have you been taking a break from training this summer? Have you signed up for any big races this fall?
I’d tell you that if you are interested in the big NYC races, here are some important dates:
- NYC Half Marathon – March 19, 2023 – Application and guaranteed-entry claim window: Mid-October 2022
- Brooklyn Half Marathon – May 20, 2023 – Application and guaranteed-entry claim window: Mid-December 2022
- NYC Marathon – November 5, 2023 – Application and guaranteed-entry claim window: February 2023
So far, I am only definitely running the NYC Half.
Anyone planning to apply to run any of these NYC races?
*** Last but not least, thanks for all your kind words on FB and IG regarding the death of my cat, Honey. Even losing an older cat is not easy. She was deaf and thin but still active with a hearty appetite. In fact, this week she ate a rabbit and the morning she died, a mouse. (I do think my younger 3 year old cat catches them.) My hubby thinks she died of old age but I kinda think she was poisoned. Anyway, at least he found her dead on our deck, not I!!
Happy Running! What’s new with you? Please share.
So Join in!
