living in the now

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

The DNF that never was

I had a blog post typed up yesterday about not running the Blue Ridge Marathon and was ready to hit PUBLISH, and then I saw this ...

After opting out of this year's marathon, it turns out I would've had a DNF because of storms. 

That gives me such a weird feeling, and I'm not even sure how I feel about that. 

But I am now signed up for the 2018 Blue Ridge Marathon ... so I guess the statement "there's always next year" really is true right now. 

Disclaimer: I am receiving a free race entry to the 2018 Blue Ridge Marathon as an "official blogger" for the 2017 event. (Confusing, right?) Visit for more information about the race in Roanoke, Virginia.
