Good morning!

And welcome to September. It's a beautiful day to get in an early morning run (just back from one over the Brooklyn Bridge, which isn't *too* crowded yet as the last "unofficial" weekend of summer kicks into gear.

As I write this, 64 days until the New York City Marathon (which means you still have plenty of time to figure out how to get your baggage to the finish line in Central Park.) I wonder if Meb and Ryan are having this problem ... :-)

Lot of good races kicking around this month, including the following:

*Roosevelt Island 5K and 10K on Sept. 3
*NYRR Bronx 10-Mile on Sept. 9 (sorry, no half this year)
*Fitness Mind & Body 4-Mile (Central Park) on Sept. 15
*Yonkers Marathon/Half Marathon on Sept. 16 (hilly and challenging)
*Fifth Avenue Mile on Sept. 22
*Newport Liberty Half on Sept. 23 (great, fast, flat half marathon, reachable on the Path train)
*Music That Heals 5K (Prospect Park) on Sept. 30
*Henry Isola X-Country (Van Cortlandt) on Sept. 30 (not sold out despite what NYYR Website says)

A full race calendar is here at NYCRuns

And, for those of you with Boston Marathon 2013 on your mind, the rolling entries start on Sept. 10

Hope everyone has a great weekend and can take advantage of the "extra" day to get in a second long run!
