hell hath no fury

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.

in the case this race is cancelled, hundreds ~ hopefully thousands ~ of runners are still planning to converge on the national mall and run 26.2 and i will be one of them! congress needs to pull their heads out of their assess and fix this now! they picked the wrong group of people to screw with.

hell hath no fury like 30,000 runners in taper mode!

    Ahh, it would be so frustrating if they cancel. Either way I will be thinking of you – go in it and give those 26.2 miles your all! 🙂

      thankfully the race will go on as planned! i don’t doubt that in a few months we’ll be dealing with this same government bullshit but at least MCM has been saved!
