Beirut International Marathon '12

Today is one of the first days of the storm, or the downpour, or whatever term you want to use to describe the rain and the official change in the weather from summer to winter...

Today is also the day of the Beirut International Marathon. I registered for it last month, with a couple of friends from work and I'd been looking forward to it ever since… But after hearing the weather forecast, all of my colleagues backed out of it and so I didn't get to put my sportive kit on :-|

Nevertheless, I want to take this opportunity to support the spirit:

This year, I was supposed to be "running for Autism" ...
"Autism is a developmental disorder that appears in the first 3 years of life, and affects the brain's normal development of social and communication skills."

So despite the rain that washed a good portion of the competitors out of the race, I want to put an umbrella over the cause, and sincerely apologize for not participating… Hope to run it in 2013!
