It’s 4:41 am Mountain time. I am sitting in the Denver airport with all my devices plugged in to the only electrical outlet I could find. Nervous Ipod, Ipad and laptop owners are pacing eyeing me up. Trying to decide if they should just ask to use one of the two plugs I am taking up (just ask I will totally share) or if they should keep looking. I am tethering my laptop to my cell phone patiently waiting for an email that is my ticket home. I am tired, I am cranky and I bet I have awful breath (onions from my cheeseburger 10 hours ago are showing my minty gum who is boss).
After sitting on the plane for 3 hours in line to be de-iced we had to return to the gate. As part of the passengers bill of rights you can’t keep people on the plane for more than 3 hours. After a 45 minute wait we got back on and were told 1 hour to de-icing and we would be off……. 3 hours later we were back at the gate. Breathe with me……. My 7:10 pm flight is now a 8:47 am flight and nobody is sure if my bag is at the carousel or will be put on my new flight, so I got that going for me (which is nice). Honestly I just need to be home to get Elise to her Daycare Halloween party, it is amazing how having kids changes your perspective. I can deal with the other ramifications of this total disaster of an evening into early morning, but I don’t want to let Elise down. I need to be home by 5 pm.
Don’t blog angry! I did get in a 3 mile run in Denver this morning, all my pieces still function after going full-out on Sunday at the Mankato-Half Marathon (Hooray!). Now all I have left on the 2012 race calendar is the Monster Dash half-Marathon (in costume of course) this Saturday.
The run was easy but I did get the “altitude” lung burn right out of the gate. It was my attempt at altitude training and I really think it will push me to new levels this weekend :).
Keeping up with Evelinruns over at: http://evelinruns.wordpress.com/2012/10/24/top-3-runningworkout-songs-2/comment-page-1/
My three favorite running songs for the week:
1) “Push” – The Presets
2) “Over” – GusGus (if things go well I will get to see them live in Iceland in about a week!)
3) “Let’s Go Crazy” – Prince (“We’re not going to let the elevator break us down”)
Is this a coherent blog? Will I get my email confirmation for my new flight? Did I share my plug-in? (Yes I did, but I had to offer nobody was brave enough to ask). Will I ever see my bag again?
How about a question you can answer; what are you listening to?
