Savannah Trip Recap
So as you all know, I had a BLAST in Savannah.. Seriously. Kelsie can take trips with me anytime. Friday we got up before the chickens (4 AM) and Kelsie was coming to my house to leave around 5.. welp. She locked her keys in her car. Her mom brought her a spare and I just drove into town and picked her up. The trip down was pretty uneventful… minus bathroom trips, getting turned around once in Macon (I am directionally challenged), and getting stuck behind a giant BOAT on I-16.. yep. It took up one and a half lanes.
We got to the hotel and relaxed and changed clothes and then headed to the expo.. not a fun experience, but I feel certain they will change that next year! We met our Race and Relax group at The Chart House for dinner. Some of these lovely ladies were a part of my Disney group as well!
Our dinner was delicious.. although next time I should ask for a more detailed dinner description, since I ordered the Chicken Primavara and it came with mushrooms AND english peas, which if you know me in real life, I despise those two foods. So I just ate around them. We had great conversation and hearing about everyone’s running journeys was so amazing. AND THEN….JOHN BINGHAM showed up and gave us a pep-talk!! It was so amazing to be in the presence of such an inspiring person!
After the race we had access to the VIP Tent (HOLLA!!) and it was so awesome.. delicious food and most importantly, mimosa’s.
After the race, we had a lunch date at The Pirate House and none of us were able to go back to shower, so we had to go in our sweaty clothes. Lorraine had some amazing goodies waiting for us!! Personalized Sports ID bands, SPIBelts and my favorite.. WINE!
After lunch, we went back and showered and got dressed and were going to the Station House to watch the Alabama/LSU game since that’s where the Savannah Bama Alum watch it, but let’s just say it was NOT a pleasant experience. I can’t give you a review of the food, since I never got mine and the service was terrible. I will not be going back.. let’s just say, our entire table’s -Kelsie, Lindsey, and myself’s- dinner was comped. THAT bad. We left at half-time of the game and settled in our room to finish watching the devastation.
I had SUCH an amazing time.. I didn’t want the weekend to end. I get to mark one more thing off my 30 by 30 list.. a GIRLS WEEKEND. I want them more often, too!
Our Race and Relax group consisted of Sonja, Lindsey, Kelsie, Renee, Yvette,Shannon, Darlene, Doretha, Pam, Sara, Nadia, Kimberly, Nicole, Christie, and Tarryn– thank you so much for such awesome company and support throughout the weekend!
