December CT races!

Here is a message from ClubCT with the good news about Waveny, and also with an update on the Dec. race calendar -lots going on!!
First, good news - the proposal to hold a summer theater production in the cornfields at Waveny Park in New Canaan has been withdrawn. Therefore, the public hearing on the matter scheduled for this evening has been cancelled. This is great news for runners who use the Park - our next goal is to get the town to remove the construction debris that has been stockpiled there and restore the fields to their original state as a meadow. Next, plenty of races coming up this month, with some shifts in scheduling: This Saturday, The Jingle Bell Run 5K in Trumbull, 9:30 a.m.http://www.hitekracing.com/jinglebellrun/ On Sunday, the Jingle Bell Jog, 3 miles, Greenwich. 9 a.m.http://www.threadsandtreads.com/tt_entryform.htm and on Dec. 7 Holiday Run for Kids, 5K (or so), Fairfield, 9 a.m.http://www.clubct.org/Races/holiday/Holiday.html Note these 2 races are earlier than normal Saturday, Dec 13Christmas Village 5K, Trumbull, 10 a.m.http://www.hitekracing.com/christmasvillage/ Sunday, Dec. 14 Christopher Martin's Run, 5K, New Haven, 10 a.m. http://www.jbsports.com/cmchrisrun.htm Sunday, Dec. 21 An old favorite returns - the Christmas T(h)ree Miler, 3 miles, Darien, 10 a.m.http://www.clubct.org/Races/Xmas3/Xmas3.html Finally, on December 28, the Athlete's Foot in Stamford once again hosts the Run/Walk for Cancer, 5K, 9 a.m.http://www.runwalkforcancer.com/
So, one can race every weekend...

I am happy to hear your local park has decided to remain parkland. I will keep my fingers crossed they clean up the debris (although coming from a position within the gov't I wouldn't hold my breath, my prediction is that any clean up would be in January...January 2010!).

So are you going to be doing all your local races? Or are you going to be supplementing your local races with a little further races as well (maybe some Jingle Bell Jogs in the City or Rockland County--I know Frank runs in Rockland county because he froze in the Nyack race while we were doing JFK).

Take care,
