10 Mile Race…Canceled

On my list of races I intended to run, the first race, a 10 miler, was scheduled for February 6th.

There was too much snow piled up on the side of the road that weekend so they canceled the race that day and postponed it to tomorrow, February 27th.

Well it’s going to snow tonight and tomorrow so they canceled it again this evening. It will not be rescheduled.

Part of me is relieved. The temperature tomorrow was going to be cold and the roads are still slippery from Friday’s storm.

And I was going to be last. Or second or third from the end. And that was stressing me out. Only serious runners run 10 mile races in February in Maine. There are no walkers for me to beat.

But I was still going to run. If the race was happening I was going to show up and run. So part of me is disappointed because I love a good long run.

I’ll have to come up with another race to run this year. Right now my next race isn’t scheduled until April which is too far away. I need a new goal.
