6.2 miles this morning.
I've been running my butt off (literally... I've lost about 15 pounds and 2" from my waistline) this spring and summer prepping for the Marine Corps Marathon and now this:
MCM and the Government Shutdown
Since the government shutdown occurred, the Marine Corps Marathon continues its coordination with hopes of a conclusion in time to host the event without impact. Without a resolution to the government shutdown this week, the MCM as planned is in jeopardy of being cancelled.
While still considering and exploring all possible options, the MCM has targeted this Saturday, October 19 as the date to officially notify runners of the status of the event. It is sincerely the hope of everyone associated with the organization that MCM participants can run as planned.
Hopefully they don't have to cancel. I don't really mind a major change in the route but an outright cancellation of the event would be really disappointing.
