Not What I had Planned

Well, that picture is the scene from the balcony of our hotel in Myrtle Beach on Saturday morning! Yup! Snow! The first time it has snowed there in TEN YEARS! What are the odds it would happen over night before my half marathon? Well, we found out at 10:30 p.m. Friday night that the race was cancelled. I was really bummed. I had been so excited and nervous and anxious for February 13th to get here. So, now I'm not sure what race I'll be running in. The two races for the spring season with Team in Training are in San Diego and Seattle. I'm not sure I can make either of those two trips and I know that the fundraising minimums are higher. I think they are going to try and find another race for us to enter that is within driving distance. Of course I would LOVE to go to San Diego, since I've never been, so I'm (not so) secretly going to look into making that one work, but not get my hopes up!

One lesson learned this weekend: Do not bring your 17 month old to stay in the same hotel room with you the night before a race. Well, not if you want to get any sleep anyway! Ha! This was a good practice run to know what NOT to do for the real thing!


  1. I still cannot believe it snowed AND your race got cancelled..after all that training! BUT.hopefully I can be there to cheer you on when you do run!! :)
