I finally broke down and cancelled my hotel reservations for White Rock. Back in August, I thought I would be running the Sunmart 50K next weekend. Why not? I had already trained for Chicago...why not run it? It would be exciting to push myself a bit more with 5 more miles than my longest distance. Turns out I not only have classes that day, but a final too! So I thought, oh well, I'll run White Rock. But, a few weeks after Chicago, I knew I wouldn't have time to keep training for White Rock or time to travel there and back. My accounting final is on the 16th, so I figured I needed to use all my spare time studying for it. (Definitely worked out to be a wise decision!)
So, I opted for the Houston and Austin 1/2 marathons. Houston is looking good...school will still be out for winter break and I registered in plenty of time. I was excited that Austin fell on a weekend when I didn't have classes. However, I just found out that my cousin is getting married in Alabama the weekend of Austin. So...I guess I will need to cancel my hotel reservations there too!
I am hoping that things might work out to do the 1/2 at Lucky Trails or Surfside...we'll see!
