This will probably be my last blog before the race.
The flight to Sacramento encountered some hiccups. From what I heard, a crew member didn't show up and the plane had to wait for a replacement. As a result, the flight was delayed by over an hour which caused me to miss a connection in Houston.
I had to wait at Houston for 8 hours yesterday.
Luckily for me, I designed the schedule for impending delays. I am glad that I intended to stay in Sacramento overnight and take the train to Squaw the next day.
The 8 hours were interesting. I was tasting some chocolates and some ice cream at one of the shops in the area, taking in a movie, and trying on some western style hats (I actually liked one of them and will probably order it when I'm done here; the price they were asking at the airport was to much).
Hey, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, right?
That's Type B Personality behavior. Maybe I'm finally mellowing out after all!
Still, I finally made it into Sacramento, along with all of my stuff last night.
Around noon today, I board the train to Squaw Valley. Where I'm sleeping tonight, there will probably not be a hot spot, so that's why I think this will be the last blog.
It's going to be one hell of an eventful weekend!
Congratulations! I have a feeling the race report from this one is going to be epic.ReplyDelete
