I was supposed to run this race this past Sunday. On Saturday night I took a trip to Target and got some cold weather running gear: tights, pullover, gloves, hat, etc. I was ready to go even though the weather was not going to be good, and it might get cancelled.
My alarm goes off at 5am, and the race is still on. Unfortunately, the two people I was supposed to car pool with decided not to go or to drive with someone else. So, I decided to drive myself. I got out to my car and turned it on. I tried to back it out of my driveway, and it died. I tried again. It died.
A sign? Possibly. Nathan offered his car, but I declined. I was very sad and in tears. I decided not to go.
My first race no-show.
