I’m more than a little bit worried/pissed right now.
I just checked my email and saw the Rock n Roll Vegas August newsletter. At the very top of the newsletter is a big red exclamation point followed by a very important announcement.
They are implementing a new marathon time limit. Five and a half hours.
When I registered, the time limit was seven hours.
GREAT JOB, RNR!!!! How many other people did you dupe into registering under the pretense of a seven-hour finish??????
Everyone says, “Don’t set a time goal for your first marathon.” Well, that just flies right out the window here, doesn’t it?
I’ve been HOPING (and training) for a sub-5hr finish, but realistically I know that may not happen. LOTS of people don’t finish their first marathon in 5-1/2 hours.
But what’s a girl gonna do? I’ll either get my medal or I won’t. The only thing I can do is train my ass of between now and then and pray for the best.
