This city is so amazing it welcomed us with FIREWORKS! YES, I’m narcissistic enough to claim those fireworks were just for me and my first half marathon! We stayed on the Kentucky side of the river, and minus a shower leak that flooded the carpet and sent us to a new room at midnight, it was delightful.
I grabbed the good camera and we hiked the 1.25 miles up to the very exciting Expo and Packet Pick up. This included a jaunt across the beautiful blue John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge.
And the serendipity was thick. Hubby noticed they handed him a menu of sheet music from Glen Miller. None other than, “I’ve Got a Gal in Kalamzoo!” Yes there really is a Kalamazoo, and yes I am a freckle-faced gal who lives there.
Me: Bowl of Tomato Dill Soup (I would have licked the bowl if Hubby wasn’t with me) & Brie Berry Salad
Hubby: Shrimp & grits (best he’s had since Charleston; I hate shrimp and grits and he had to growl at me so I would stop taking bites);
It was so good we made a reservation for brunch the next day. We walked back to the hotel, and I nervously prepared my race day outfit and went to bed.
