I’m heading up to the Fall Superior Trail Races this weekend and it’s a given that things will go wrong on a course as long and complex as the Superior Hiking Trail. I wasn’t expecting things to go wrong before I even left my house though. Got a call today that the hotel I had booked was dealing with storm damage, and no power, and that my reservation was canceled. DOH!
I managed to make alternate arrangements, but for a while today there was a bit of a panic. I know that other runners were affected by the sudden change as well, but the trail running community are good folk, and within minutes of it going out on Facebook, people were offering up futons and floor space to anyone who needed it. It really shows how great a group of people can be who are all a little crazy about something so crazy like running trails.
