Remember the blog I wrote in regards to, "it's a sign"....well, the sign that I spoke of was the meeting with a new triathlon coach last Saturday that never happened. I was a little disappointed when I just happened to pull up my email while sitting at a light on my way to the Starbucks where we were going to have our meeting. There it was, the thing I dreaded, she cancelled on me!
Gracie was not happy at all but thankfully I hadn't gotten but only 10 min from my house when I read it.
At least it wasn't a complete cancellation never to be rescheduled. She claimed she ran some miles that AM and was in a little pain and needed to get home for some meds. I guess I should give her the benefit of the doubt and probably empathize with her a bit as well, since I've been there done that. However, at that moment, I was...hmmmm....shall we say PO'd! I did exactly the opposite of what I'd said in my blog about not getting my hopes up. Well, I got my hopes up and BAM...they were shot down in that very moment.
It's okay now, I've gotten over it, just needed to vent a bit. She emailed me back to reschedule after she returns from the San Francisco Nike's womens race this weekend. Once again, I will not get my hopes up. I will wait for her to email me. I have till January 2013 to start preparing so it's all good!
Thanks for listening on the 10/11/12 day!
