After ‘Sandy’ blew through much of the northeast & mainly NYC, I am trying my best to keep a positive outlook & “think happy thoughts” as Disney’s Peter Pan taught me.
It was really windy & cool (50’s) here in Bama after work yesterday, but the sun was shining & running is my therapy so I completed my next to last training run of only 3 miles & felt wonderful. However, I couldn’t help myself from being glued to The Weather Channel ALL evening after I arrived home. The updates seemed to only progressively get worse as the storm wore on. I started crying when they reported the runway at LaGuardia was under water.
I just have to run this marathon on Sunday. They have to get things cleaned up & power restored. 18 weeks of training & years before spent dreaming of one day running NYC. This has to happen. No word from the directors of NYRR & I am constantly checking Facebook & my email, but try to remind myself it is still only Tuesday. A lot can happen (positively!) in the next two days. Please continue to pray this mess gets cleaned up & NYC gets back up & running by the weekend!
