Here I am at 11:26PM on a Thursday night. I should be getting up in about 4 hours to make my way to the airport. In a short 30 or so hours the race is to begin. It's not going to happen.
I cannot begin to tell you of my disappointment. Last night at about 10:00 PM I recieved an email from North Face detailing that the race may be postponed due to Hurricane Hanna bearing down on the East Coast. Today at about 7:00 that email came. Because of the the governor of Virgina declaring a state of emergency, there was not going to be enough search and rescue personal to support such race. Therefore, no race.
Where do I go from here. That's easy. The second weekend in October there is the Palo Duro Canyon 50 mile race. It's the first race in a 5 race series of 50 mile Ultras in Texas.
