Race Update

Memphis got hit by the snow and ice that passed through late last week, so the St. Jude Memphis marathon was cancelled! The race officials made the right call -- the sidewalks were treacherous and huge trees lining the course were covered with ice. They've given us the option of transferring our race registration. A stellar organization, that St. Jude. 

No big thing. I've got another nine months to qualify for Boston 2015. I'm more disappointed in the busted transmission that left us stranded on the side of the road for hours on the way home. With three kids. Lawdy. 

See you Wednesday with a special Norah to cheer me up!

  1. I am so sorry! These things happen for a reason even when they feel like they dont. Im sure this means you are going to smoke whichever race you try! All the best!

    1. Thanks, Christie! I do feel like this was for the best. (The race, not the transmission:)

  2. So, should we be expecting a blog post on how to occupy three kids when you are stranded in a car for hours ;)

    1. Hahaha! No way, Jenya, because I hope that doesn't happen to anybody else! We only have one secret -- a DVD player. Plus the car's heat still worked, so we were very grateful for that.
