Fact #61: Like I really need another excuse to be lazy

Remember the Spirit of Pittsburgh Half Marathon that I signed up to run? I just got an email telling me that it's been canceled!
*pretends to flip a table over*
*pretends to punch someone in the face*
"Oh yeah, Spirit of Pittsburgh? Well, you're ugly and stupid!"
"Waaaaah!!! Why, why???? I've been training for this race my whole liiiiiife!!!"

It really is a bummer though, I was looking forward to it a lot. I have no idea why it was canceled -- they just said it wasn't going to happen and offered to transfer my registration to a Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 Marathon or refund my money. I'm just taking the refund, because I'm too busy/poor to travel to another city for a race this fall.

But seriously, what am I gonna do to get my butt out the door now??

Til tomorrow.

Gee, you seem really upset about them canceling the marathon. Maybe you can just run it by yourself! Haha, just kidding, enjoy your extra laziness!

You know, I did see some signs around Shadyside for a 5k happening the weekend after we close (Oct 2nd I think to be exact?) I know it's no half marathon, but maybe if you just do a bunch of 5ks it'll add up to half marathon? 'Cause, you know, that totally counts. :P (Also your blog is pretty much my new favorite thing EVER :)

I'll have to see if I can find out what race that is. I would totally count a few 5ks as the equivalent of a half marathon! ;)
