Welcome to October

One of the great things about running this month (my favorite month) is that you know never know what the conditions will be when you walk out the door the following morning - could be 90, could be 30 degrees. So it was this morning when I woke up, watched a little Ryder Cup and planned for a nice morning run. The rain had held off so far -- what was the worst that could happen?

Hah. Sheets of pouring, windswept water, giant shoe-sucking puddles mixed in with a precious, solitary experience of sopping footsteps chugging down the Brooklyn Heights Promenade - not a soul on it except for me. (Which probably was because it was POURING.)

That's why I run. Happy October.

P.S. Five weeks to the New York Marathon (and a week to go if you're running Hartford). Excited?!!!

I couldn't agree with you more! Thanks for inspiring me to get out for a run tonight along the new Brooklyn Bridge waterfront park, where I got to enjoy some solitude and a spectacular red sunset!
