Snow Storm Marathon

Thank you for the comments on my post yesterday, bullying isn't a fun subject to talk about but we need to if we ever want it to stop.

Mike and I are heading out today to run, hopefully, the Hyannis Marathon relay.  Other New England races are already being canceled or postponed because of this, yet another, weekend storm.

The race director for Hyannis and the Barnstable police haven't made a decision yet, but I'm 90% sure that the race will go on.

The email from the race director this morning said, "I have had a conference with the Barnstable Police Department this morning and we have decided to hold off until 4:00pm on Saturday to make a decision. The snow on the Cape is expected to be light with rain but there is a possibility of very high winds - as high as 50 miles per hour and this would be my reason for canceling the event".

Right now says rain/wind, with the wind at 37 mph, and 41 degrees. I won't mind the temperature but the rain could put a damper on things. And with the wind, it won't feel like 41 degrees on the coast that's for sure.

Either way, we're ready. Crystal and I have our red sparkle skirts and we both got haircuts.

I haven't had a haircut since 2011, not even a trim

Mike and I are read to rock team, "Drove From New York to Run with a Dork" and sherpa like the best of them. 

 Maybe this should have been our team name?

Are you racing this weekend or did your race get canceled?


  1. HAHAHA! I love it! I'm ready to see you both. I am sure having you around will calm my nerves. Fingers crossed! In theatre we always say THE SHOW MUST GO ON!! Let's do this!

    1. It will go on, I'm pretty positive! And we just take the weather as it comes and do our best. We will get you across that finish line though.

  2. Have a great weekend with your friends! Good luck and kick butt at the race (Fingers are crossed it stays on for you!), haircut looks great and love the red sparkly skirt!!

  3. Sounds like fun, hope the weather works out for you.
    Either way looks like you will have a great time.

  4. I have a 5k tomorrow night and it almost got canceled due to the several inches of sleet we got yesterday. I will be donning a costume and if they have enough people race three of us are jumping in a tank of water when done. Race is called Freezin for a Reason and then added the Freezin plunge..
    Hope your race goes on as planned and that you have a great time.

  5. Wow, that weather sounds crazy! Hope you still get to run... with no wind. :)

  6. I hope it does too. I actually just got a haircut a couple days ago and it was the best thing I've done for myself in a long time.

  7. Fingers crossed that you guys get to race this weekend!

  8. Oh my gosh. Really Jamie, you are so dedicated. You constantly motivate and inspire me with your attitude and determination. A snow storm, I'd be in bed. Go Jamie!

  9. Best of luck, Jamie! I am sure it will be an incredible experience!

  10. Ahhh your hair looks adorable! Hope everything worked out!
