New Race Plans

Ugh. Is there anyone that does not have a canceled race yet? I am seriously glad that we are all together in the pain of this.

I got word on Thursday that my Race to Robie Creek half marathon is canceled and won't be happening the 3 Saturday in April. I am sad because this is the only race I care about all year.

My email about the race
But then I got an email for my St. Patty's Day 5K on Saturday the 14th is still on, but without water stops and post-race snacks.

My email from Thursday
That is totally cool. I never drink water in the middle of 5Ks so its no big deal to me.

On Friday night I was prepping for the morning. I decided to confirm on the website the start time.

Website Notification
Oh, look. Its canceled. Did I get an email about this? It went to my spam folder so it was there and they did let us know. They were gonna still mark the course, so I did appreciate that.

I had pulled my green race outfit out of storage and I just purchased a new green tank top.

I was gonna trot it anyways. I did buy my Gone For A Run virtual run to get my shirt. I already had a bib and medal so all I had to do was get my miles in.

I was planning on getting up at 8am and heading down to the start line and trot at 9:30. But I woke up at 5am and went back to sleep at 6:30am. Before I fell back asleep I turned off my alarm and would get up whenever I got up. I woke up at 10am and did some errands and completed my miles in the afternoon after it warmed up.

I like the options of virtual runs right now. I enjoy them but I don't. I always run alone so its just another training run for me. I do like adding to my medal collection but I also like races where I am with other people. I probably won't sign up for more.

The only thing I was training for was the Robie Creek Half Marathon. But now, like everyone else out there, my training plans are out the window.


What is my next race and where am I in my training plans? I don't know. I had an MRI on my knee on Friday because my knee keeps swelling. I know I have arthritis in it, but its not bad enough for my swelling issues. Its either because I am overweight, have bad form, my muscles are tight or weak. I did get new shoes with inserts and it helped with the shin splints I gave myself in January. But for the cause, I am not sure. I will focus on healing the cause of my issues. I can lose more weight before the next half marathon I do, I can strength train some more and stretch more regularly.

I am glad for the cancellations but I am not. I don't like to be out the money and time, but I want the time to find out my knee issues. I am thankful that we are not alone in all of this.

Did you have any race cancellations? Did they reschedule or defer your registration for next year? Did they give a money back option? What is your training plan like with this little blip in the calendar?

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
