I should be on my way to Miami today for the ING Miami 1/2 Marathon. This was going to be my bib number.
I could’ve met Ryan at the expo or race.
I could’ve had this amazing piece of bling.
But, alas, I am not going to be there and will not meet any famous runners or get any fabulous bling. Right before the holidays I made the wise decision, after figuring the cost for P and I go to Miami (around $1500 just for hotel and flights-doesn’t include food or fun), to back out of the race. I only lost $55 from my race sign up. I signed up last March at a race expo long before I knew Disney was going to be my FL race. I could’ve done both, but I am really glad I decided to back out.
So sadly, this is my first DNS. I won’t be in Miami. I will be in Atlanta. Approximately 658 miles from the start line. And I guess it is a good DNS. It isn’t because of sickness or injury. Just my wise ways of
attempting to save saving.
To all of you racing this weekend (especially those in Miami), Good Luck!
