The 50K I was supposed to run today? Didn't happen...will happen next week!
Due to the freak snow storm, it created icy road conditions that were going to prevent us from getting into the state forest. Also, the buses to get us to the actual start line weren't going to make it so the race was postponed until next weekend.
I'm sure this messes with some people's schedules, but it works for me. One more week to get my foot back to normal!
When I woke up Saturday morning and saw the snow, I just stood in amazement. Despite seeing the forecasts, I honestly didn't believe them. Most of the time those things are just plain wrong, especially for this town. I grew up with tons of snow but we really don't get much here. I totally planned on still going to the race but checked e-mail the afternoon and found the announcement.
So I ended up with another rest day and then today, I ran 11 miles, a third of what I'll run next weekend. Afterwards, I went out for a huge lunch, equivalent to what I should have been eating if I had actually completed 50K.
And, I've totally failed at staying out of the Halloween candy. Thank goodness I'll unload the rest of that stuff tomorrow night!
