Woodstock fail

Alarm clocks can be finicky little devices. Particularly when it’s secondary functionality on another device (see: iPhone). I had big intentions of hitting the road at 5am this morning to drive to Anniston, AL for the Woodstock 5k. Alas, that didn’t happen.

As depressing as it was to not run in this race, things could be much worse. Last night we had our first trip to the Children’s Hospital ER with Jane Darby. You can read all about it over on Jane Darby’s blog. It was not a “hair on fire” emergency, but still enough to freak us out a little bit. By all indications everything is good now though.

I hate that I wasn’t able to participate in the Woodstock 5k. I truly was looking forward to this race, and my training was actually not that bad leading up to it. It definitely stinks to miss out but there are always other races to sign up for. Now I just need to find the next one…

Today I signed up for this race in Anniston on August 4th. It looks like a fun race and everything, but pretty much the only reason I signed up is because they have a “Clydesdale” category. This is like a separate age category, but for men over 200lbs instead of men 25-29 years old. I really wish more races would have the same setup!
