Officially Canceled :(




I understand why, and I knew that it would be canceled, but I feel cheated. I trained hard for this race. I going to pick up my packet because I want the shirt, but do want the medal. I wanted to earn it. I think I'll just give it to my daughter.

Tomorrow I was going to do a short run just to stay loose for the race, but I think now I'll just do a long run. Then it's off to the BrewFest to drink my blues away to have a good time ;)

Has anyone else had a race canceled before?

Found you through Jamoosh! I have some friends that were running the same race. One gave up smoking a month ago! I told her to find another race asap to keep her motivation.
I am from Holyoke, but live in the Houston area now. Loved reading your blog. Hope you don't mind if I follow your journey!

Thank you K for the comment. If they are looking for another Half Marathon, tell them to check this site out:

Man, that sucks! Hopefully you can keep your training up for a while and hammer another one. Y'all hold on out there - it of course doesn't look as bad as the media is making it, but it's not gonna be fun. Best wishes.

Well that sucks. At least Brewfest is still happening. At least for the moment.

Kudos for you for still trying to get a long run in.
