What could be a better reminder of fall than all the news coming out about fall events? The NYC men's elite field was announced Sunday and Meb's running; Boston opened its registration process yesterday (anyone registering for next year?), the 5th Avenue Mile was completed this weekend, and the American field was announced for Chicago. All that and the Olympic marathon trials is next February. Whew, right?
It is difficult to think of fall stuff because fall hasn't hit Dallas yet. We're getting hints of it, but the pattern we're in is it starts to feel like fall, then warms up, we get thunderstorms, then the temps drop again. I have no idea what to expect for my 5k next month, but I'm prepping for a lot. I need to buy a hand-held water bottle because there's only one water stop on the 5k course. If it's a warm morning, one stop won't be enough for me, so I need to bring extra hydration. I think a stop at my LRS is in order this weekend or next.
