Tropical Storm Ike made its way through St. Louis on early Sunday morning. Despite this, I was there, at the start line, wearing a total of 4 garbage bags (one around my waist, one around my torso, and one over each foot, ready to roll. It was crazy out there!
At mile 10 they cut the race off. I ran an extra 3 miles to get back to the hotel so that I can actually keep the "Half Marathon" medal they provided at the "finish."
Ah well, such is life. I got to run and share some comraderie with fellow running fools, and considering what Ike has done to other parts of the country, getting a marathon cut short is no big deal. Report to follow.
