Oh yes, I definitely left my brain in MS or somewhere along the way.
* after getting off the plane in Boston I forgot to take my phone off of Airplane mode until arriving back in MS. (thought it was weird, no calls, not texts, but I just thought everyone forgot about me :(
*Monday evening - leave our hotel, walking, to the Marriott to meet Jill, Meg, Bethany & Ryan and any other bloggers that made it for Jill's birthday party. We made it to the hotel, walk inside and I can't remember where we are supposed to meet. I am thinking it was one of the meeting rooms. I was supposed to look in my Boston folder to get the name of the meeting place, before leaving the hotel room (airhead forgets). Guess what else, yep, forgot my phone in the room. If I would have remembered the phone, I probably would have forgotten to get Meg, Jill, or Bethany's numbers. So I go to the desk, maybe they can let me know what meeting room it is. Nope, it's not a meeting room. I called Meg's room and someone in her room tells me to meet them in the Champion's Bar. Yeah, back on track. Go to the Champion's bar and walk around slowly looking for people who look familiar through pics I've seen on the internet. No luck! Walk around again. I know I will recognize them if I see them, I guess not, because I never located anyone that looked familiar. Tired and hungry, we give up and go to dinner. Bummer! So wanted to meet my blogger buddies.
*Tues am. - we are packing and I am looking for my camera. I can't find it, but I think it must have already been packed.
*arrive at the airport and start seeing marathoners with their Boston marathon posters. Yikes! Where is my poster.... thinking, thinking, thinking On Sunday am we switched hotels, and we had to store our luggage until a room was ready. When they brought our luggage to the room that evening, I didn't notice my poster was missing.
*get on the plane and one of the marathoners is looking through the Boston Globe at marathon results. Yep, forgot to get a Tues. paper.
*get home unpack, you got it, no camera - all my pretty Boston Gardens pics -( after the sun finally came out) - gone. no pretty tulips blooming, no cherry trees, no pretty willow trees with city buildings in the background, all gone. Luckily we did have a few pics on Chad's camera.
So Boston bloggers - please post your pretty Boston pictures so that I can steal them because most of the pretty garden pictures were on my camera.
A few lingering thoughts about the marathon.
Monday - why would anyone run this marathon more than one time
Thurs. - maybe I should go back and try to improve my time
There were many people lining the course, but I actually thought there would be more.
The course is not very scenic - so glad it is lined with spectators.
I had a great time, can't believe it went by so fast.
Smaller marathons are still my favorite. St George is my favorite so far.
What is your favorite marathon?
