Happy Monday, y’all! I’ve enjoyed reading your responses to my race
rant review about the half-marathon… that wasn’t. There’s really no point in dwelling on the disappointment because it’s a done deal. As with many things in life, focusing on the positives (like finishing 5th out of 70 in my age group) is a better way to spend your mental energy.
I thought it was ironic that the day of my race, this print I had ordered arrived in the mail :)
After writing yesterday’s race review, I decided to e.mail the race director. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one of the 949 half-marathon participants that did so. When I checked my e.mail earlier today, I was pleasantly surprised to have received a sincerely apologetic letter and compensation for a future race.
“While we can’t fix what happened, we can say that this will most definitely not happen again. Along
with our deepest, most genuine apology, we would like to offer you compensation towards a future
event. We will be sending you a voucher that may be used as a half-off coupon to any of our
upcoming events taking place in next 12 months, OR as a $30.00 (75%) discount towards
pre-registration to the Moonlight Half Marathon in 2012.”
After a lazy rest day yesterday, I feel calm and ready to run on. You can bet I’ve already been researching races. I think I’ll tackle Half #6 come early fall…
After all the recent running rambling, I think we’re due for some nutty summer recipes…
See ya soon!
