5 Fall Races!

Well I’ve actually got only 5 Fall races on my schedule and then I’m going to call it a day!

No, I’m not going to hang up my running shoes, but I might let them collect a little more dust than they have right now which is zip,



I’m ending hopefully on a high note with the Marine Corps Marathon and then going to dial it back


At least as far back as I dial things back.

I will cross that bridge when I get there, but here are my 5 Fall Races

  1. September 13, 2015   Iron Girl Sandy Hook Sprint Triathlon –  Yup, this one is right around the corner.   Nope, I’m really not prepared for it.   Ok, I am ready for the run, but not much else.   I haven’t really been on my bike in a while.   I’ve been swimming off and on.   That being said and I quote my coach said, “You can do this one in your sleep.”   HA HA HA!!!!   Actually, I am not worried as I am doing this one for fun.  I just love this even.   I’ve done it twice before and it is just such a great day.   So as unprepared as I am, I’m going for it.   I’ll keep you posted.?????????
  2. September 27, 2015  NYRR Bronx 10 miles – This one will be number 8 NYRR race for my required 9.   I’ve done another Bronx run and it was fun.   The best part is that I will be going in with my fellow Mama runners and I’m sure it will be a great day.
  3. October 4, 2015        Paine to Pain Trail HM – This one Dawn did last year and talked me into doing.   I signed up eons ago.   I love running trails and I’ve been missing my running buddy, so this should be another great event.
  4. October 11, 2015     NYRR Staten Island Five Borough Series Half –   Hooray!!   This will be my final check required in my 9+1 which will guarantee me entry to the NYCM for 2016!!!!!!
  5. October 25, 2015      Marine Corp Marathon – This is the race that I will end my year on (maybe).   This was the race that by some luck I was picked in the lottery to run.   Still amazed at that.    The more I read about this race, the more I know that it will be an amazing experience that I will never forget.   I can’t wait to run it (which will mean marathon training is over!!!!).    Being as I have always wanted to go to Washington DC and never have, I think that this will be an amazing way to see the “sights.”   I know I will need to remind myself more than once that I need to run and not stop for photos.   Can’t wait!


What 5 Races are you doing this fall?
