We are more or less in a holding pattern here in Maine.
The great news is that the officials running the Marathon have been excellent at keeping us informed.
We expect an official decision on the race status at 4 PM tomorrow.
|Hahahaha.... Glad it won't be THIS bad!|
As it turns out it looks like Hyannis will be experiencing mostly heavy rain, and remarkable (possibly 50 MPH!) winds.
Ummmm. Less that ideal? But much better than snow!
We're operating as though this marathon will take place. Getting stuff packed and organized. Refusing to fall face first into a large vat of ice cream and/or wine... (for the time being.) My taper tantrum has ceased much to the relief of my exclusive dating partner and I'm pretty much ready to man up for whatever we end up doing.
I have prepared a slightly crazy back up plan but am planning on taking care of shit at this marathon as long as they will let us run. I'm seriously contemplating the purchase of some rainy day gear- as much as I don't like adding tons of layers the thought of 3.5 hours in driving rain makes me feel prune-y to say the least.
Planning to spend the day working (duh) eating (DUH) and getting everything ready to leave the house and head for Mass at 4:02 tomorrow afternoon. (good, positive thinking!!)
Fingers crossed. Let's do this thing!!!
