Travel, let me tell you about it.

So my half marathon is tomorrow morning. At 5:45 am. I was up for 39 hours (barring a few cat naps) from Thursday morning until last night.

Woke up at 7:30 on Thursday. This year, London (Ontario) got nearly a meter of snow in 24 hours. We've had several bad storms. I had to drive 2 hours to get from London to the Toronto airport for a 6:30am flight. I decided to take the 10:30 bus instead of the 1:00am bus because I didn't want to miss my flight due to bad storms. I thought I'd sleep on the bus, and then after I'd checked my bag, and then on the flight, and I'd be good to go.

I didn't sleep on the bus, and it took 2 hours to check our bags and then get through customs. For those who don't know, the US now has customs offices in Canada before we even board the planes. Needless to say, I didn't get to sleep then. I slept a bit on the plane, then got to the hotel, checked the bags with reception, and went to the Fit for a Princess Expo (At Dinsey World) to register for the race, then we had a few hours to ourselves before dinner, where I sent the e-mails to let people know I'd arrived safely, then dinner, then before I knew it it was after 10pm. I don't remember the last time I was up for that long.

I spent today at the Expo as well and picked up some awesome swag. I've decided that my next endeavour is to run a full marathon, then a triathalon. Yes, I'm insane.

We've decorated our race shirts for the run tomorrow, and I've got a Tiara. Apparently they'll have all the Disney characters on the course, too. I'll post pictures (and the photos from Ottawa) when I get back.

P.S.: Sponsor me at my fundraising page. I lost my grandpa to Lymphoma, and my close friend's mother battled lymphoma as well. The money goes towards valuable research (I know, because my own research is funded by non-government sources), and education.

Even if you can only spare a couple of dollars, every little bit helps. Those dollars can add up quickly.
