Decided to adopt the traditions of my host nation this Thanksgiving.
Will therefore spend the day consuming unhealthy and frankly unnecessary quanities of food and alcohol.
Might even watch a little football. I'm looking forward to it, except for the football!
I am however trying to escape the Black Friday Shopping Mall frenzy, aka. Hell on Earth.
If anyone is around to join for a gentle jog on the friday, let me know.
It looks like the organizer has some cool plans for 2011.
"Expect to hear more about the following races coming in 2011:
The NYC 100 Mile (On the Central Park Reservoir)
The Three Bridges Run 100km: Times Square to the top of Bear Mountain (course)
The NYC Aquaduct Ultra 42 mile (Bryant Park to Croton Dam)"
"This is Watchung, not Siberia. Nothing bad will happen"...except bear attacks apparently!
Was a great turnout today. I hadn't run there since I was a kid running cross country. Met up with Chris, Elizabeth and Lisa and ran with them for the first 4 or so miles but I couldn't keep with their pace. Ended up doing the half-marathon (2:05) as my slower pace wasn't going to get me to thanksgiving dinner in time :(
Good run today! It was great running with Sean (even if it was only for 4 miles), Lisa, and Elisabeth, who made the first two laps fly by and set a great pace for the rest of the race. I originally thought this was going to be a really flat "roadlike" trail run, but the course turned out to be deceptively hilly. My main training focus for the day was to try to keep a consistent pace through out the race, which besides for sucking a little on the third lap I felt I met my goal. I even managed to run the last loop the fastest of my race. The race organization and course markings were all really great, especially for a Fatass event.
