The Hungry Runner Girl: I died.

Sunday, February 13, 2011

I died.

My brother is a pilot and so I was planning on using buddy passes to get to Boston because we don't exactly have the money to drop on plane tickets.  This was a risky decision because flying standby to Boston when everyone else is, is not the best idea.  I didn't tell you guys but this stressed me out BIG TIME.  Yes, I had many nightmares that I would be stuck in an airport somewhere waiting to catch a flight as the race started.

That all changed tonight.

I opened a present from my siblings.  Plane tickets to Boston.  Thursday-Tuesday.  The flights are the perfect times and I feel like a load has been taken off my shoulders. No stress here.  I will be at Boston with plenty of time to meet any of you guys that are there!!! We are going to party!!!  I peed my pants.

Thank you Greg, David, Rachelle and Daniel.  I am so grateful.  I am officially the luckiest girl alive.  Thank you so much for everything.  Expect some yummy goodies in the mail.

P.S.  Don't you love my new bracelet and necklace made my the niece.....she has been working on it since Thursday.

Yayyy congrats! The necklace is beautiful. At the summer camp I work at, I get new jewelry every week from the kids craft times. I jingle and jangle while walking around from all the beads.

Oh girl that's awesome! Cannot wait for you to KILL Boston! You have so many people rooting for you! I'm 40 last year and my goal for this year is to get faster and faster (I PRd my 10K last week) and dream of qualifying in the next couple of years. Plus for me being older lol! You ROCK girl! Love you! I have my BFF's sis living in St George so who knows, a Utah trip and meet up with you could be in our future!

You have a TERRIFIC family!! I bet those cost a pretty penny. Are you flying into Boston or nearby? I'm flying into Rhode Island, since my friend requested it.

Also- AWESOME B-day present! Woo -hoo...what a week =D !

And a race coming up, too.....

You have the most loving family! I love that everyone is so supportive of your running. I totally understand that not having plane tickets would stress you out, but now that you're set you can focus even more! You are going to own the boston marathon.
Happy Birthday! Looks like it was a good one.

So awesome!! I love family! If you have never been to Boston- you are going to love it. I grew up an hour outside of it and it is my most favorite city to go back and visit! Boston temple is really nice too!

 
At February 14, 2011 at 5:34 AM , Blogger Crystal said...

oh ps: restaurant that I love there is "Fire and Ice" it is sort've like a mongolian grill- but they have tons of meat, fresh fish, veggies, sauces, rice, noodles... that you can choose from and you put it all in a huge bowl and you bring it up to their amazing grill and they cook it right there for you and it is fantastic. Did I mention that you can go back for more?? Buffet... but not gross buffet. Just unlimited visits to the grill :-)
