Thanks and Sadness

No, I was not at the Chicago marathon. My marathon, the Detroit Free Press, is in two weeks--hopefully it won't be 90 degrees. Thank you for all the concerned phone calls and those who stopped me in the hall (and bathroom--hee) at work to make sure I had heard the news so I could be prepared.

I feel so sorry for all those people who trained for so long just to have their race be spoiled by the heat--and to be told at mile 20 that the race was canceled? I honestly would have cried. Advice to anyone planning to run: always pack your own Gatorade.

So nice of people to call/stop you! BTW, your header is doing that weird thing again where part of it is missing the black outline. Drives me crazy. lol
