Greetings from Geneva, Switzerland and yes it is such a beautiful place. I had the pleasure of flying from Thursday and arriving this morning in Geneva and just making my plane. When I left Cincinnati it was storming and my flight was slightly delayed. In order to make my connection I had to run for my life ha ha, no really I ran like 3 miles throughout the Washington airport. So maybe this is TMI but when I made the gate, I was dripping with sweat and so thankful I made it. Yes I was the last passenger to board but all the flight attendants felt sorry for me and gave me cups of water and paper towels. Man I was hoping for a upgrade to business or first class....didn't happen but I did cool down and enjoy my seat in economy plus with and extra empty seat in the middle.
So the flight wasn't to bad, I think 8 hours and I didn't get much sleep. Once I arrived I was met by the track meet organizers and to the hotel we went. I was able to eat breakfast and head to a nice cozy bed....yes I needed some zzzz's before pre meet warmup. Aaahhh once up from my nap I was adventurous and rode the bus system to the track. Ok I was nervous at first because I thought I might get lost but I made it!! So I can brag and state that I used the bus system like a Genevian....so while at the track I meet a guy who works with the youth who run track. It was great to see so many kids out there running and really enjoying it. So check out the video.......
