So after paying $50 (each), waiting more than six months, and driving 50 miles, Becca and I arrived at the location of the Warrior Dash this afternoon. Nick and Emily were there as well, as was my friend Jacob from the Swingsters.
However, the Dash was canceled… at least all of the heats after 1:30pm were canceled. This included all of our heats. Granted, they canceled the last few waves because the temperature was so high, which is a valid reason (safety first, after all). But that doesn’t change the fact that I spent so much time and energy looking forward to this only to be let down at the last minute.
So after looking forward to this for months, we got a t-shirt and a promise of a refund.
I’m really disappointed right now. I know Becca is as well, and I’m sure that Nick and Emily are right there with us, and the 2,000 other people who didn’t get to run today.
