Question - when you advertise a 5K on an official Missouri Races website, don't you have some sort of obligation to update it if the race is cancelled or delayed for some reason? Well, today was supposed to be my first 5K and I was all ready and nervous and excited - I showed up all dressed for the cold weather and the park was EMPTY. Waited around, more runners showed up wondering the same questions I was wondering - are we in the right place? Has the race been cancelled? Is there someone to call? 15 mins, 30 mins, an hour later and not one official....one guy jogged over to the police station to ask there but it was CLOSED - only open 730-430 M-F otherwise dial 911. Gotta love small towns. So anyway, my mom and I walked the park a bit and then gave it up and went for breakfast. I am not mad, just disappointed. Oh well, I look forward to my next 5K (which will be my first) in May at the Spark Rally. Hopefully, it will go as planned!
Have a great weekend peeps. Don't worry, I am not discouraged.
