Traveling to Boston

Today I am flying to Boston for the beginning of a long weekend of fun and running.  It is hard to believe it is finally here after a long year of planning. Yesterday there was a total freak out moment for me when I logged on to US Airways to print our boarding passes.  When I entered our confirmation number, a message came up saying it was too early to check in. What?  It was less than 22 hours until our flight.  Next I had the pleasure of calling the help desk.  The girl who answered was professional and courteous quickly putting me at ease. She said there was a schedule change announced earlier in the day and our flight was not leaving until 3 hours later than what I had on my itinerary. This would not work with our evening plans, so she immediately found space for us on an earlier flight.  Best of all, we have TSA Precheck and Zone 1!  Now we don't have to worry about our bags getting on the plane with us!

With the schedule change, we now need to bring breakfast for the flight, so a quick trip to the store and muffins and bananas are packed.

Had to use my Without Limits bag for my breakfast!
Choosing a travel outfit was hard, but I ended up with jeans, my Brooks Running Ravenna shoes for race day and my sweatshirt from the race that helped me get to Boston! Normally I dress in nicer clothing for a plane flight, but this seemed appropriate for a trip to the marathon!
Quintiles Marathon sweatshirt!
There will be some Facebook posts from Boston, but I am not sure if Christine or I will have time for blogging but we will have plenty to say when we return home next week!  I also want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for the support I have received over the past 12 months leading up to this weekend. It has been humbling and so appreciated.
