I did it...

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!

I had a lot of fun at Surfside last year - I can definitely recommend that one (and I did the half which is 100% on the sand). I chatted the whole way with people I'd never met before.

Sounds like you have changed plans wonderfully. I hope it all works out!

I've heard good things about Surfside.

And I'm totally with you on those best-laid plans. Why do you think I've never signed up for Ironman? $450 a year in advance and no refunds? Right.

I hope you're not out much money on any of this!

That sucks on the one hand, but you have a good plan on the other. Ditto on Surfside above. I am doing the full and my wife is doing the 1/2.
