Well.... The snow flakes have been falling all day and the wind is beginning to howl so my first running event of the New Year is going to be a cold one!
In the past on New Year's Day I had the advantage of sitting in my office on the Guilford Green while waiting for the Frosty 5k to begin. Thought I'd be running the Frosty 5k again tomorrow but another event of more historical significance will be taking place so I opted for that race.
Event: Chilly Chili 5k
When: January 1, 2009 at 10:30 am
Where: High Plains Community Center - 525 Orange Center Road, 06477
This race will double as a birthday celebration and includes a new category for runners. Most of us know there will only be one entry in the new division. Doc Whitney, who started running when he was 80 years old and has been a fixture at most of the 5k's since will be running as a 90 year old. This may also be one of the last times Connecticut Runners will see Doc at our events, he is moving to Vermont where I'm sure he'll find some challenging hills to keep himself fit.
In honor of Doc's Brithday runners are encouraged to wear mis-matched socks... slip a dress sock over you normal running sock for Doc!
I'm always running around the Connecticut Shoreline so if you need assistance Buying or Selling a home in my territory just remember to google Dan Cummings, The Running Realtor or email Dan@CummingsTeam.com
