Look, I know its August. I know that we haven’t even gotten into the fall racing season – but this girl is looking forward to CHRISTMAS.
About a few weeks ago, I got some news at work that made me sad. We have a huge project that will take place over the first weekend in December. That meant that I would not be able to do a Christmas themed 10-miler that I really wanted to do. It would have been my first 10 miler. However, I was a bit nervous about doing a 10 miler only 2 weeks after my goal half-marathon (so I was secretly relieved).
But the wind has changed direction, and there were some big changes! The race is now a 5 miler and changed weekends! It’ll be on December 20th in VA Beach. In addition to changing it to a 5 miler, they have made it an evening race, starting at 4:30pm.
I have mixed feelings about this change. I LOVE that I can do it now, but am unsure how I feel about an evening race, that’ll be a new one for me. I am indifferent about the race distance changing. A 5 miler is still a new race distance for me (though I’m no stranger to an 8k), but I was really looking forward to the 10 miler.
Anyways – the Surfin Santa is back in the cards for me!
Do you have a Christmas themed race you like to do? Have you ever had a major change to a race you wanted to do? Has work ever kept you from doing a race?
