Two more quick things about the Trials :
(1) I was interviewed by media today about my experience at the Trials (this former broadcast journalist wannabe was thrilled); and
(2) The highlight of today was watching Meb wave an American flag as he sprinted to the finish. A true goose-bump moment!
After the Trials experience, John and I returned to Cliffwood to handle some “to-dos.” My primary to-do was taking down and organizing all of our holiday decor. Yes friends, my Christmas trees were still up as of 4:00 PM today! Such is the life of a girl on the go! 😉 We got it all squared away and had a quick dinner — Pink’s Pizza. I had a few slices of a Canadian bacon, pineapple and jalapeno pizza on GF crust.
Delicious! Afterwards, the Hunters came over to settle in for the night. Thanks to Sally (again!), Nelda is running tomorrow’s half-marathon! Yes, Nelda got a free entry to a race that has been sold out for months and required a lottery system to gain entry. And because Nelda is a bad-ass, she is running even though she hasn’t trained for it. Watch, Nelda will smoke me and Julie tomorrow! Anyhow, I need to get to bed. Good Night!
