Let me be clear, I hope very much that everyone is OK and that the loss of life is zero and the damage to property is minimal. I’ve seen puppies being rescued by bayou style air boats so I have to assume that help is getting to the people who need it. (On a side note, why the hell do people in ND have those bayou style boats!? Last time I checked the ‘gater problem in ND was actually quite small.) However, I can’t help but wonder how this will affect the marathon course. Today I did what I have been avoiding and I looked up the race route: http://www.fargomarathon.com/Marathon.pdf
Just as I expected, that light blue squiggle amongst the marathon course is the Red River….. The very river that is threatening the city. Bummerrrr
I am sure that we’ll have some sort of race, but I just wonder where it will be and what it will be like. A friend of mine suggested that if all else fails, the organizers could just have us run around a block 100 times. Awesome.
