I just realized that the 2 races I'm considering running are on consecutive Sundays. The Prospect Park Track Club 10 Mile is on Feb. 22 and the E. Murray Todd Half Marathon is on March 1. Is running road races in consecutive weekends a good idea? I know that Rundangerously runs races just about every weekend. I don't have to run both at full effort. I can treat one race as a training run and go all out on the other. I'm told that Prospect Park is a tough place to run, so maybe I'll run the 10 mile at training pace and go all out on the half. Anyone care to comment?
