The Running Realtor: North Haven 21st Annual 5k Road Race

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

North Haven 21st Annual 5k Road Race


 It is that time of year again when the spring running events are plentiful and the housing market begins to see fresh new listings.  North Haven is coming alive with both! 

2008 has started out Great! New Year's Day I spent an hour or so in my office on the Guilford Green waiting for the start of the Frosty 5k and although the day had a bit of drizzle it turned out to be a personal record for me, my fastest 5k.

Since I am now preparing for my First Marathon with the Team in Training I'm not sure how I will feel as I start the North Haven Road Race on Sunday morning.  My weekly long run with the team is every Saturday and I'm scheduled for 14 miles the day before the North Haven Race.  This will be the longest I have ever run so I expect to be feeling the effect of those miles while running the 5k.

Hi Dan,

All that extra training has helped you improve your pace, I'm thinking lots of carbs the day before....:)

Suzanne...  Still haven't mastered nutrition,  think I do plenty of carbs everyday!   As far as race pace I'm not sure how the 14 miles the day before the 5k will effect me. Still feeling a little sore from yesterday's 12 miles.

Monika... I suspect I will do fine.... I'm there for the fun and fitness with no plans to brake any speed records.

Teri... The running and fundraising is quite hectic and I'm glad the new listings are coming in... Now just need to sell them!

Lindsey... Not sure I'm being inspirational enough with you..... What is this about not being ready to run your 5k until the fall?  Don't make me come out there!  LOL
