1. Did you see they announced RNR Brooklyn?!
October 10. On my calendar. Three weeks before NYCM. (I’m thinking this will either be part of a 20/22 or I’ll do one last 20/22 the week after and do a two-week taper. We’ll see where my fitness is in seven months.)
I already took a look at the course map, and, well, it involves a lot of out-and-backs, which I’m not crazy about, but I am crazy about most any NYC race. So, there’s that. It will be an awesome way to psyche myself up for NYCM. (Like I will need any help with that.)
2. RNR DC
Yeah…that’s the plan.
While I started running much more regularly this winter than I did last year, in no way did I nail my training. Or anywhere close. Work has been a priority and the weather has sucked, and running in the cold/snow are about as fun to me as running on the treadmill. Though I did a bunch of treadmill runs, I finally hit a point last week where I could. not. any more. So, there’s no PR happening in DC this weekend. But I’m really going to challenge myself to not just “run for fun” like I’ve been doing with so many races in the past year or so, and give it the best effort I have that day. Even if it rains. Even if it is that time of the month. (The likelihood of both of those things is near 100%. Ideal race conditions!)(Also, I need to coordinate my race calendar better with my cycle.)
Are you running a race this weekend? What races are you looking forward to?
