Running This Weekend

After being put in my place by two 5Ks (Sunday, Thursday), and facing a bunch of schedule conflicts this weekend, I ain't happy. Still, there's running to be done:

*Both Saturday and Sunday mornings look perfect for long runs (with rain possible both weekend evenings). Should be in the 6os tomorrow morning, which is a nice change.

*On Saturday, many are running the NYRR Mini 10K (featuring 11 Olympians). It's also being Webcast on the NYRR site. Women only. Closer to home is the Race for Auto Music 5K! at 9 a.m. Other events are on the PPTC Web site.

And then of course there's the U.S.-England World Cup game *and* the Diamond League meet on Randall's Island in the PM (not happy about this). Lagat will be running in the 1500 with about 15-20 minutes to go in the game ... blech - wouldn't be a problem, if I didn't have tickets to the track meet. (Yes, I know, a better smart phone would save me).

*Sunday, please note, the Michael Hanly run has been canceled, according to the Web site. Cool race icon, though. Thunderstorms later in the day, indicating some levels of humidity, in case you run in the evening. Then you have the choice of watching Celtics-Lakers game 5, or running early in the AM Monday (again, not happy).

Good luck, everyone who's racing!
