A pair of halloween 5K races -Wilton and New canaan -Oct 26








Yikes --my quads are hurting today. Good thing I have a big fat black and white cat sitting on my lap as I write this. Despite taking Saturday off (to carve pumpkins, shop and attend a sports bra-fitting party at runner's roost with Kate)and despite running 2 5Ks yesterday that both included flat trail sections...I can tell that I am not fully recovered from the 100 and from last weekend's race and long run. I pushed too hard in the morning ---for about a 3 mile course my time was 19:52. Was most pleased that got to run with Rob, Frank, John and Darcy --this would not have happened at Poland spring 5 miler. In the afternoon, I scaled back but won socks for first in old lady division --this was actually a tough course in Waveny park, and while I could see Roy and Frank ahead of me, could not catch them ad didn't want to. treated ourselves to Pumpkin pie after the race!!! Kate ran with her boyfriend Tom and he set a PR. Roy was able to race this 5K, as opposed to last year when he was recovering from the heart attack!! Well, it may be a death march this Sunday but I am determined to enjoy it. Here are some photos from the 2 scenic races --Wilton Halloween hustle (a meeting of orange socks)and New canaan Police pumpkin chase 5K...
