Yeah, I went there with that post title. I’ve heard that joke a lot in the past few months!
So, yesterday I hustled around, packed, and dropped off our dogs at the kennel (who is the only person in the entire world I trust to not let our 7 pound dogs escape–Elaine is the best!! Email me if you want her info)
Here is Kona on the drive to Easton–
Got to Logan (airport for you non-Bostonites) and got front row due to these awesome signs:
Flew through checkin and security (I only had one carry on–no checked baggage! Boy am I efficient!), only to find out our first flight was delayed due to the weather.
2.5 hours spent reading (and finishing) “Picture of You” and “The Things They Carried” with this view:
Uneventful flights, other than the 12 year old girl puking in the seat behind me. Read the entire flight, landed in Denver after 4 hours:
And then Spokane after another 2!
A quick 30 minute drive and we were finally in Coeur d’Alene!! It was 12am local time, but felt like 3 am to me. I fell into bed, but woke up early because it was time for the infamous BREAKFAST! QT2 had 35 people at the local IHOP this morning. The chaos before food:
We all sat down and got right to business. I was at a table with PW, Charlie, Duffy, and Logan. This is what they ALL got:
There was hardly any room left on the table for my eggs whites, fruit, and hash browns! Not sure how everyone else’s breakfast went, but I know there wasnt a single crumb left on a plate at our table!!
Came back to the room (we are rooming with Chuck! Nonstop laughfest, I tell ya!) And I tried to watch an episode of Combat Hospital on the iPad but promptly fell asleep for TWO HOURS! Why is travel soooo draining?,
I am heading off for a run this afternoon (it’s only 3:30 here–it’s like having an extra 3 hours in my day!) and then it is time for the pre-race dinner!
I will be updating live with race updates on twitter tomorrow….follow me if you’re interested….@thatrunnerchick
Over and out until tomorrow night!
