My blog, social media (Facebook and Instagram) and the camera on my phone give me ample opportunity and ability to document a lot of my life. It’s a blessing and a curse.
A do love to document travel and races, but I have been negligent.
I went to Long Beach in March. Originally, I was going to fly down on a Saturday, so I could spend Sunday in Los Angeles. So, Saturday I headed to the airport. When I tried to check in at the kiosk, it said it was too early for me to check into my flight. I thought how odd. To make a long story short, I went to the counter to discover my flight had been canceled, and I had been booked for a flight on Monday. I needed to be there Sunday, and I was able to change my flight to then.
I had such plans and dreams of spending Sunday in Los Angeles. Having brunch. Going to the beach, walking around and people watching. Hitting up some favorite neighborhoods. Getting in some much-needed Vitamin D. But alas home I went to return to the airport to fly out Sunday morning.
I was able to check into the conference and unpack. I attended the opening reception then met Samarah for dinner, and we were able to catch up. When she left, I realized I had no pictures. And this theme carried on the for the entire trip. Outside of attending the conference and conference-related events, I was able to spend time with my friends from other ports. The picture posted was taken by a friend of Louanne’s, and she sent it to us. I was able to have dinner with Louanne and Randy. Hit up the beach. Go on walks with a few of my friends and catch up. I was able to see the Queen Mary. The day I left, I was able to grab a quick coffee with Mary. It was nice to catch up with her.
In March, I did the St. Patrick’s Day Dash. I normally try to get a picture of myself at the start and finish of my races, but alas no pictures. I actually got a pretty good time. Around 50 minutes walking. I was a rule breaker, and I ended up starting with an earlier wave. Everybody else was doing it. LOL!
I have not signed up for the Rock and Roll. I really hated the Seattle so much that I might take a break from the half marathons this year, which means I should probably do more 5Ks. I missed the Mardi Gras 5K, which I think was in February. I meant to sign up but what had happened was. Then I missed the Brunch run that happened earlier this month. I actually like that one quite a bit. Such delicious food! So, I need to figure out Plan B.
