So we got back to the room last night and went to bed right around 11.  I was up at 7:30, which is actually pretty good for me.   Normally I am up around 6ish.  Of course all of that was EST, so I was actually up at 4:30 here on the west coast.  The parents and I are now sitting here watching the 5 o’clock news, while I play on the internet.  Thank goodness I brough my laptop.

 Last night I did have the pleasure of finally meeting my friend Dave in person.  Unfortunately it was already past my bedtime, so I felt very much like a zombie and probably behaved like one too, lol.  Hopefully I will have another spotting of him around the hotel as I undoubtedly grab some food one from one of his eateries as I try to carb up for my race on Monday.

Today we will make our first venture into one of the parks.  Most likely Disneyland park since that is the reason we came here…to see the first, the original.  Ok, so we came here for the race, but seeing Disneyland was how I was able tgo talk Mom into coming with me.  😀

We Made It

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

Despite Super Shuttle’s determination to drag us all around the fine cities that surround Anaheim we have made it to Disneyland.  Our flight landed 40 minutes early because of relatively easy winds.  We could see the Grand Canyon as we flew over it which was pretty cool.  I am taking tons of pictures.  This place is really neat and conveniently enough, even though my internet connection in my hotel room isn’t working I am picking one up wirelessly from a bar in the courtyard area below our hotel room.  We have a great view of a fish pond and can spot Space Mountain and the Matterhorn if we step onto our balcony and look to the left.  There is a cool sticker on the door with kind looking Disney birds on it that advises us that birds enjoy visiting the rooms so it is best to keep our windows shut.

Not Working

So blogging from my cell phone is not working as I had hoped it would.  Oh well.  I might still blog but it will have to wait till the evenings while I am at the hotel relaxing…so it might not happen.  :/  If I don’t get to I promise something good when I get back.  🙂

Watch out Anaheim, here I come!

So Pat went back and posted another map with the countries he visited. Definitely not doing that. It will make my US map look like I have lived a really adventurous life, lol.

Got my new cell phone yesterday. Yay! I am going to set things up so that I can blog from the road, so you can continue to look for updates as I travel around Disneyland and go stick my feet in the Pacific ocean.

I got one last run in this morning. 3.25 miles. I just wanted to keep my legs nice and loose because they were REALLY tight on my Monday run. This one felt really good. I am definitely ready for my race. Now just to get past the confusion that my Dad and I are having because the race is on Monday, lol. We keep saying Saturday, Sunday and even Friday. Oh bother!

States Visited

create your own visited states map

I got the map thing above from Pat.  Unfortunately compared to his map mine looks rather sparse, lol.  I tried not to include states I have only driven through, which includes West Viriginia and Georgia.  I have visited Alabama, but was much too young for me to remember it now.
