I know I know...everyone has been on the edge of their seat all weekend waiting to find out what the crazy girl did this weekend.....and if she finished..and if shes alive...Please call off the search and rescues in Atlanta....I DID ITTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLLA!!!
ANyway...Friday afternoon I left and drove to FLorida to pick up Danielle. We already paid for the hotel friday night but got in a horrendous traffic jam. We realized we weren't going to make it to Atlanta till 2in the morning (thanks to our dueling GPS's...they literally fought the whole way). Garmin: TURN LEFT
TOM TOM: TURN RIGHT DAMNIT
GARMIN: I SAID TURN LEFT IN 500 FT YOU IDIOT! etc...
so we decided to first have an Air Jam Session to Ray Charles in the Car....with sunglasses on....at 11pm....to create some entertainment for the other cars stuck in the jam. I think I was actually lead singer at this part.... no worries...Danielle was on keyboard. Then we turned around....and had to offroad...and made our way to the Knights Inn. This was the only hotel (if you can call it that) in town that had a room. Apparently everyone got stuck in the jam and scrambled to get rooms. Anyway...this room clearly had mice living in it...we wouldnt even sleep on the bed. We laid our clothes down...and slept on TOP of our clothes as to not touch the sheets. In the sheets we found fur, hair, and sparkles.....if that even begins to give you a clue of our living conditions for the evening.
The next morning (sat) we got up bright and early and headed to Hotlanta. We got there and checked into our beautiful Marriott. While I was in the shower Dani decorated the hotel room for my birthday...it was sooooooo cute!! Then we headed to the expo to pick up some fun stuff @ The Georgia DOme! Don't worry....we were the only girls all dressed up in dresses and such trying to act like we werent athletes. We thought it would be funny to be carrying around the "full marathon" packets and have everyone look at us like "ughh..those girls are running the full???"
Next is when things got a lil Messy. Dani's friends picked us up and took us to "The Grape," an awesome restaurant in Atlantic Station known for drinking wine. We quickly ordered a bottle of wine...and this girl was DRUNK after one glass. EEEEEEEEK!!! Then we stumbled on over to "Dolce" which is an AWESOME Italian restaurant owned by Ashton Kutcher. Me and Jess are pictured below in the lovely restaurant. And this is where we managed to get our carb load on! AKA DRINK WINE AND EAT PASTA!!!! Finally we headed back to the hotel....where they could have rolled us in the doors after all we ate...we went to the front desk and asked for trash bags (due to the rainy forecast). THe lady looked at us funny like why in the world would you need trash bags at the hotel?!?! Dani quickly cleared up the confusion and said "Trash bags big enough to fit a BODY in!!" OH dear...the lady hands us some huge trash bags and I swear turned around and called the police. Finally, we managed to get to bed around MIDNIGHT!!!!!! YES MIDNIGHT!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH! The alarm went off at 4:45....and we were like OH S$*@ We are screwed! It was 40 degrees and pouring rain! EEEEK! So we quickly got ready....and headed to the MARTA. Oh...p.s. we decided to go with the matching HOT Pink spandex.....TOTAL DIVAS! haha Helped make sure we never lost each other. We called them HOT pants! Everyone else on the course had other nicknames for them "Team Pink", "Diva Girls," etcOk so we finally make it to the starting line and................
HAHAHA! The TV Stations do it...why can't I? I'm tired folks....tired tired tired. The rest will come tomorrow.
