Club Challenge Canceled!

I sent an email to the folks who had registered for Club Challenge earlier today, informing them that the decision has been made to cancel the race. No word on whether it will be able to be rescheduled, or when that could possibly be. The decision was made by the Howard County Striders and the Howard County Police. Based on the anticipated weather conditions I'd say it's the right call. At this point we're able to at least make backup plans.

I'm bummed because I was looking forward to racing personally, but also because I love this team event AND we were going to get to debut our new singlets.

But don't fret, because there's always a Plan B!

Nothing can make up for the atmosphere of a race - but we're going to try. Since we had all planned on running 10 hard miles on Sunday, for those who are up for some fun, here's what we're going to do:
  • Meet at the Trade Center, warmed up, at 9:00am
  • Based on the numbers, we'll break into teams of 2-4, evenly split between M/F
  • Race a 6 mile, out-and-back course through the Harbor, Key Highway and out to the Fort
  • Fastest aggregate time will be our Champions
  • Go home, warm up and regroup for a celebratory brunch like we otherwise would have!
Now I realize that some of you may not want to do this, or may have other workout plans in mind - totally fine. This is optional and if the weather happens to be actually bad, check back here to make sure we're still a go. But I figure you're going to run that day anyway, may as well have some fun with it!
