As you may recall, this was the week I had planned to be on the east coast.
I was supposed to fly in to DC on Friday, celebrate my birthday on Saturday. Yesterday I was supposed to run the Marine Corps Marathon. Then I was going to see all the things in our nation's capitol, including tour the White House (for which I had to apply for approval six months in advance). On Thursday I was going to head to Pennsylvania, spend a couple of days with friends there. On up to New York for a couple more days, then out to New England.
If you want a visual representation of my itinerary, just follow the path OF THE FREAKING HURRICANE.
Yeah. Suddenly not so sad that I deferred MCM to next year.
Flights are delayed or cancelled outright. Federal offices in DC are closed, at least for today. Mass transit in DC and NYC is shut down. Amtrak cancelled its service on the east coast. The Staten Island Ferry isn't running.
As a long distance runner I'm in to challenges. But this is ridiculous.
Sending good vibes to all of my east coast friends. Stay safe!
