Well the marathon is now over, and its been over a week since i’ve posted. The marathon went well, and we had absolutely perfect weather! For spectators, and volunteers it may have been just a tad chilly, but it was actually PERFECT for the runners! I’m not going to complain either way.
Well Kirra woke up this morning and had a toaster strudel for breakfast along with some pecan sandies. Jason called and asked what to dress her in, so she came down in a onsie turtle neck, some leggings, a sweatshirt, hoodie, and tights. She got to see the mascots which she was a bit scared of when they got up close to her. It was rather cute. She would hug on to us very tight. We went in the Family Activity Tent and warmed up before her race where I was able to take her hood down, and I saw that Jason had done her hair into a Mohawk with gel and everything! It was really kind of cute actually! I’m actually surprised he didn’t dye it with me gone for the weekend! Pam and Phil came out, and Nana Theo. And Nana Susue, and my dad, all came out and watched too! Missy, Brian, Ally & Gabby all came out and the girls all raced! They had an Up and Up changing station which was really nice, and were handing out free up and up stuff, along with coupons too!
So why am I up at 3:40am? Because my room is hotter than Iraq! My thermostat is turned all the way down to 55 to try and blow cold air in there, but it just keeps pumping the heat! If after a little while typing I go back up and its still as hot as Iraq, i’m going to tell the front desk to try and have someone fix it. I should have just went home and stayed there. I miss my bed. I miss my Jason and Kirra.
They have these sleep number beds, and honestly I don’t understand why people like them so much. Its either way to hard, or when you do make it softer then the edges of the bed are hard as a rock (the frame I presume).
So at the RiverCentre they have a little Java Cafe, and we got these travel mugs and coupon ticket, and if we show our mug/ticket, we can have free hot drinks, and free smoothies all day! I’m going to be needing to take full advantage of the free mochas.
Tomorrow is the VIP reception. I have a few tasks I need to do on top of my customer service tomorrow. I need to print table tents for the press confrences, and nametags for the VIP reception, which I am very very excited for.
Well hopefully if I go back up its cooled down now that I set it to 55. It was at 68 or 65 but apparently that’s too hot. Another thing I found kind of weird in my room… i’m on the 17th floor, and they have these huge windows, where the bottom opens up with no screen. I mean you couldn’t fall out in this crack, but I just find it odd. I’m sure you can’t break it and fall thru, but it made me kind of nervous….
Hopefully I can get more sleep. I didn’t go to bed until 11pm.
