We weren’t sorry to have skipped out on this race. The weather was rainy and cold, and we were happy not to be departing our cozy bed at 5:30am to catch the Staten Island Ferry.
Of course, the official reasoning for our truantry was not ‘lack of motivation’ (though accurate). Two weeks previously, Sophia danced a bit too hard at a friend’s wedding and sprained her ankle – she is just barely off crutches now, and not back in running form yet.
So with that good excuse, we stayed snuggled up in our warm bed, and checked another race off our list!
