Virginia Beach a No Go
Aaaahh... Good morning ! Last night I received an email from Rock and Roll organizers, giving the option to get a refund or a transfer for the VB Rock 'n Roll race, because of the State Of Emegency in Virginia recommended for people to avoid travel on Saturday, due to the tropical storm.
I weighted my options. Canceling the hotel was an option.
Chances were that Sunday would be clear, but getting there Saturday was going to be a difficult. So I asked myself, is it worth to volunteeraly put myself in the path of a tropical storm? Was it worth it for a Half Marathon? My heart felt heavy, I've been training for this all summer, and it would leave me with nothing to do for the weekend.
But then I also realized that I have Bird In Hand Half next week, and Philadelphia Rock 'n Roll half the week after, so my training will not be wasted.
With those thoughts fresh in my head I pressed cancel on the hotel, and transfer on The Half Marathon.
While I know I made the right decision, but I kept second guessing my choice and feeling sad that I won't be doing the half this Sunday.
Does it count as a DNS if there was a tropical storm on the way?
