Most of the time, I think it is good to stick with commitments. But when you are sticking with them for the sole purpose of obligation, and the benefits no longer remain for any party, it is time to reconsider. West Virginia is not far. I have good friends who live there whom I want to visit often. There is potential for running a beautiful race - with a good friend who may actually be able to run. These things outweigh crossing something off a list.

Any other suggestions out there?

Until next time, peace, love, and keep running!
