So, now that my one-race tri season is over for the year, it's time to get back to Marathon training. I'm signed up for NYC in early November, and if that's not going to be a disaster, I'd better start logging base miles, and long runs. I had one 19 miler under my belt three weeks ago, but other than that, blessed little running in my schedule for the last couple of months. In a normal universe, you build your way up to the 20 milers. No time for that. Four of us set out this morning for a leisurely very long run. Two of the runners were folks I'd never run with before, who were both training for NYC, and one was my long time running buddy, along for the first dozen as a good sport. There's nothing nicer than a fall run in New York. The weather was perfect. We snaked through Brooklyn, then came back along the East River, over the Brooklyn Bridge, through Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Red Hook, and then home. What a great way to spend a weekend morning!
