No Race...Is it a Sign?
The Governor of Virginia has, understandably, declared a State of Emergency in preparation for Hurricane Hanna. As a result, all emergency services are on call and unavailable to give support to the really cool 10K trail run I was going to be running in tomorrow with my pal Amy. So no race. I'm disappointed to be sure, but the training has still been valuable and as a result of the cancellation, I won't miss my monthly inservice training for seminary (the early morning scripture study class I teach every day). Eric says it is a sign from above that I never should have considered skipping my meeting for something as trivial as a race. Get it? Sign from God and all that? Be assured that he is 100% JUST KIDDING and be more assured that I really don't believe that Heavenly Father works that way. It makes a funny story though. Skip a meeting and get a sign of Biblical Proportions like a HURRICANE rushing up the coast to change your mind... Be warned...
But see, I'm know I'm not being punished because I'm getting part of my money back, and my bag of cool running swag and I don't even have to drive to Virginia and get all muddy running 6 miles on a trail. So who's the real winner here, I ask you?
