Have you ever gotten the date wrong for a race? Well I have….. today! I’m running the Nikia’s Nippy Nor’easter Half Marathon, and for the last several weeks, I was thinking the race was today. So last night, we had the traditional Olive Garden dinner. Then this morning I got up, grabbed my gear and hit the road. It’s been rainy here and before I left I heard some thunder, so I was thinking the race might get cancelled. I arrived at the location, a small parking area off the trail, an there were a few cars, but no signs of the race. I just figured I was early, and with the rain things were running late. An hour before race time, and I knew something wasn’t right. I grabbed my phone and looked up the site to see if the posted a cancellation. Sure enough, I saw the first page and realized what was up. The race is NEXT WEEK! So here I am feeling like an idiot with one week to spare. I guess it could have been worse, I could have been a week behind and missed the race! Oh well, I really did not feel like running 13.1 miles in the cold rainy weather anyhow.
