We can’t control other people, their actions or many of the situations we are finding ourselves in. Not being able to look or plan ahead - or even see an end - is excruciating. I have chosen instead to focus on something I can understand and work hard at in the short term - running. Obviously all my races so far this year have been cancelled/postponed. Unusually and hopefully just this once, two very awesome races are offering virtual options. Pittsburgh is open for virtual registration until May 3 (date updated), and Cincinnati opens April 1. I’m in for the 5k and Marathon (Steel Challenge) for Pittsburgh and likely the Half for Cincy.
It’s just a little thing but it’s a hopeful thing. Both of these races did an excellent job giving their registered participants options after being forced to cancel and I want to support them in any way I can. Plus it’s first aid for my mental state.
