Leaving the frigid NE for warm dry California weather…Running with my friend Mary again…Seeing scenery like this…
This race was just the icing on the cake.
Since it was a St. Patrick’s day race, I planned to wear as much green as I owned:
with a black tank and black compression socks. Cute but not contest worthy!
Well, it never happened!!!
I got up yesterday morning at 4:30 am to find out that my first flight (to Philly) was cancelled. The weather was clear in Philly but they had had bad weather all week. So who knows why?
Needless to say, I was big time bummed!!!
The earliest that they could re-book was today and get to Palm Spring (on 3 long flights) in the evening.
Yes, miss the race!!
At least it was only a 5K and not a big race that I had been training for.
Still a bummer!
So instead I went to work EARLY and went for a run after work. Since it was earlier than usual, I went to the bike path and hoped I could find some dry spots.
Well, in two parts, I managed 3.5 miles.
Good-bye snow and ice for a while. My next running pictures should look very different.
Happy Running! Did your travel plans ever interfere with a race?
