Wow. It’s hard to believe that just a week ago I was in Florida ready to race my third Princess Half (second Glass Slipper Challenge). I do not miss the snow and cold that I came back to here in Pennsylvania, that’s for sure!
The begins, we have to go back to last Thursday. I left Edinboro around 1:30 AM to head to PIT for my red-eye flight at 6AM. Needless to say, traveling to get there was like navigating the Millennium Falcon at lightspeed: it was a whiteout for the first 60% of the trip. Scary scary stuff. I hit PIttsburgh and naturally everything was clear as a bell. This normally two-hour trip turned into a 2.5 hour trip, but I arrived unscathed at PIT around 4-ish. I did the security thing, and ran into at least four other runners in line that were all going to be racing the PHM! That was a great way to start getting excited at 4:30 AM.
I did the flights, one from PIT to LGA, then down to MCO. When I got off the plane…it was a balmy 47 degrees. (Seriously…I went to FL to get AWAY from the cold!) The rest of the day was slightly dull…basic check in and getting acquainted with the hotel. I stayed at the Park Inn by Radisson. Not a bad place to stay.
Friday = expo…stay tuned 🙂
