Forget Anything Nice I've Ever Said About You

I was going to tell you about my 20M run and the awesome 5K the Redhead and I did on Sunday down in Corktown (Det!). But, I’m so mad right now I have to ignore all of that. Why? This morning, when I went to see if the Lansing Marathon had responded to my email (two weeks old) or my FB post asking about the official course—no response to either as of yet—I noted on the webpage that the ‘interactive map’ has changed. Not a bit, a ton.

This is an entirely different course. Are you fucking kidding me!?! Are you fucking kidding me!?! I’ll update soon. But right now I’m angry. Less than 7 weeks out. Needless to say, I’ll be attending the weekly sponsored runs this week so I can have a little face to face with the organizer
of this event.

The course for the Ann Arbor Marathon has changed twice, as far as I can tell. Darn inaugural races and their growing pains!

I can't complain too much, since I have no plans to run the A2 half, especially since the course now includes that dreaded, pointless trip to the mall.

Stay calm. I don't want to read about you online. "Enraged local runner causes scene at group training run for Lansing Marathon..."

Well, at least it does take you by areas you are familair with already. Bright side?

I mapped the latest "new" course and see that they removed everything south of the Lansing/Holt border. Perhaps disagreements with Delhi Township?

I completely understand your frustrations!

And it still isn't an "interactive" map. Classy.

Wow...I just looked at their Facebook page...wow. What an absolute trainwreck.
