The Martians did send a serious email addressing the weather:
Is this going to be the first ever ice skating, swimming, running triathlon??? Sure seems that way!
If there's even the remote possibility of an alternate course - which seems really likely at this point - just announce the change and post the new route so we can get used to the idea. The worst thing would be showing up on race day, running the first mile THEN finding out oops! This isn't the normal course! I can deal with bad, I can handle changes, but the uncertainty is stressing me.
I'm number 10033. Crappy miserable weather AND an odd number???? I was hoping for an even number! This is seriously going to rival Indianapolis for my worst race ever, and I never thought that would be topped, what with the sleet, rain storm and FLU!!!! Bah! The misery!!!
Can someone have a cup of steaming coffee for me at the finish???? This size ought to be a good start :) And an electric blanket please???
