The 10k of Sleepy Hollow OooOOoooOOoo!

Comments 2 Standard

This morning’s race was up the Hudson Line in Sleepy Hollow. A mere 34-50 minute Metro-North train ride (depending if you get the local or express) along the Hudson River. What could be more beautiful on a fall morning?

Was hoping he’d turn around, then saw him right near the end as I was about to run up the last hill…

The highlights for me:

– gorgeous morning to run

– Halloween themed

– Headless Horseman on site (although my pic isn’t great)

– hilarious announcer

– leaves in their transition colors

Gorgeous colors, heading toward the Hudson

– tons of creative and funny costumes

– hilly yet really nice course

– decent snacks afterward, and beer sample from the tavern across the street

– some music along the course, my favorite was the kid rock band

– tons of families coming out of their gorgeous homes to cheer us on

– beautiful architecture of the old houses, decorated of course

– zombies with rubber runner body parts, and silly signs along the route

This was a fun race and will definitely be a repeat for me, except next year I hope I can conjure upĀ someoneĀ to come with me (and in costume).
