Flights, checked. All fine (for now). Delta has lowered the Economy Comfort seating to $69 from $99 for the MSP-AMS and AMS-DTW legs. Hmmmmm. Most people say the extra legroom is way worth it for attempting to sleep.
Erin meets us in the MSP and has a 2 hour window, so we’ll plan on meeting her at her gate for a giant “it’s really happening” jumping up and down frenzy. OMG.
I went to the United Way kick-off lunch today. Sat next to a parent of another 10th grader I know. We talked kids a bit and he asked about my next race (December officially, still considering Woolaroc next month) and I was telling him about the trail run and explained I was doing more hiking this fall to prepare for upcoming trip. He causally asked “so where’s the trip” and I casually replied “Kilimanjaro”. I swear his jaw literally dropped to the table! ~cackle~ He said “well I was expecting Estes Park or something like that”. Ha! I told him how I felt the trip to CO this month really helped me feel ready and now it’s a state of “keep it up” until the trip.
Continue knocking off to-do list posted yesterday (got flights check, 1 thing done. ONE THING!). Hoping for a trail run while the boys go car shopping. XC meet before that. Hair appt! Yay! Not much else. First weekend in September I really have no obligations. Hope to be ultra-productive
