Yes, that is me. I am a weather and flight stalker. I leave on a 6am flight tomorrow morning for Orlando, and if you have watched the news at all today you will see snow across the nation. And my frequent flier first class ticket flies me through Chicago where the snow is currently settled on. So needless to say, I have been a bundle of nerves, worried I will never make it to Orlando. It doesn't help that Good Morning America said this morning that airlines are suggesting people postpone their trips because of all the flight delays. That comment made my eyeballs do a dance as I am not canceling this trip after all the hours in the pool and physical therapy I have put into getting to this race. There is still no guarantee I will finish this race, but I will toe that starting line.
I followed my flight for tomorrow today and the flight is on its way to Orlando right now from Chicago. THANK heavens! It was delayed for an hour, but it did leave. If you remember from my Twin Cities Marathon report, I have terrible luck flying. The weather should be better tomorrow so hopefully the airport doesn't get too backed up so that things go smoother tomorrow.
I haven't started packing yet, but I did make some cookies to bring with me. I am meeting a friend from college so wanted to bring something to get her excited about her first marathon. Good luck to Jax on her first marathon and my sister who will be running the half with me. I probably won't have an update until Tuesday because I am leaving the computer home, unless my application I downloaded for my iPhone works, then I will a small update. Otherwise, look for my results on Facebook.
Here are my Mickey medal cookies:
