Tuesday I received an email that the Black Cat 10- or 20-miler was going to be postponed. There is so much snow everywhere it is causing major safety concerns. A lot of races have been cancelled lately in the area so I almost expected this.
Yesterday we got word that the event is cancelled.
I can understand the reasoning why. I've wanted to do this run for awhile now so I'm slightly disappointed, but it's okay.
While refunds are not being provided, they are offering a discount code towards any of their other races. They are also allowing you to pick up your bibs, shirts, and extra merchandise that you paid for.
A part of me is really relieved. I haven't been training since completing the Dopey Challenge. The weather is not helping either.
The next thing up on my list is a 5k, happening in Salem at the end of March. I'm looking forward to doing that run. It will be the first run for Carrick and the first time that Nate will be with me running, not just watching.
I'm looking forward to getting outside and running. Hopefully some snow will melt away so that is more available for me.
