The Race is On! (Sorry Mother Nature)

Mother NatureDear Mother Nature:

Really, that was your best shot?  You tried to scare us with those crazy forecasts, but you barely touched our little racetrack. We’re scouting like crazy looking for downed trees and massive flooding, but alas, it appears you were just giving everyone a big head fake.

Sure, we got a little water, and our streams might be busier than usual, but on a scale of 1 to 10 on what we expected, our trails right now are an 11.

Our runners are smart enough to bring an extra pair of shoes to change into, so even if the little streams are still flowing in the morning it won’t be a big deal.

And temps in the 50s?  Are you kidding me? That’s just awesome.  We don’t need 70s. We don’t want 70s. Our folks will just bring dry shirts and sweatshirts for the finish area while they hang out and eat our great food.

We’ve even got locker rooms for them to change!

So to you, dear Mother, a big old Bronx Cheer.  You can’t scare us away.

Better luck next year.

P.S. Race day registration is available from 7:00-8:30.
