Resolution Redux

What do you do when one of your New Years resolutions is cancelled?

Well, that's what happened to Smartmom. And she is PISSED.

The Brooklyn half-marathon, a 13-mile race from the Coney Island Boardwalk to Prospect Park has been cancelled. Training for, running in AND completing the Brooklyn Half was Smartmom's #1 New Years resolutions this year. Smartmom got the bad news this morning during the Brooklyn Half-Marathon Class.

Smartmom was really excited about the Brooklyn Half. She thought it sounded so cool to start on the boardwalk and then past the Wonder Wheel, the Cyclone, the Aquarium. Running through Brighton Beach, on Ocean Parkway, and past the Orthodox Jewish synogogues and yeshivas, the race was going to end with a grueling three miles in Prospect Park.

But no go.

For reasons unknown, the race has been cancelled. The coach of the Brooklyn Half-Marathon Class is going to find another half-marathon for the group to run in. He mentioned something about a May 1, race in Long Island. So Smartmom will keep you posted.

What happens to a dream deferred? It gets transferred to Long Island.
