A dream, deferred

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Last month, I made the difficult decision to put off running a half marathon. As I was injured and unable to fully train, it was really the only decision to be made.

This was the icing on the crap-cake that was my summer, for the record...

On Friday, I received an email from the organizers about all of the pre-race details. I was about to delete it, but instead found myself replying and asking if I could defer my entry until next year. Why not, right?

And they said YES!


While I know a lot can happen in the next year, I'm psyched at the very possibility of running that race. :)

    Glad you were able to defer and keep the dream alive.

    I think you made the right call. Maybe it is a blessing in disguise. I've never done a half marathon. Have you? Maybe a goal for next year or the year after.

    It's great that they let you do that! You made the right decision to postpone.

I love your comment about the icing on the crap-cake because I can totally relate....but we both are going to rock in 2012!!
