Bobby and I had quite the interesting weekend. I am way to tired to blog about the race today, but I will try to have my recap up by tomorrow. But first, we need to back up to Saturday where the “fun” began.
We decided to leave for Pensacola around 12:00 on Saturday. We had a few errands to run along the way, and then had to go to packet pickup and check in at our hotel. Bobby’s driving makes me so nervous, so I volunteered myself to make the two hour drive.
Things were going fine, and we got off the interstate on the other side of Mobile to run a couple of errands. I was yielding waiting to merge onto a highway, when all of the sudden, WHAM, we were hit from behind. You have GOT to be kidding me! In a different state, trying to make it to packet pickup before they closed, MY POOR CAR! Not going to lie, when I got out and saw the damage, my first instinct was to FLIP OUT. My car is not even two years old, and I know even if you get it fixed it is never quite the same. (I was rear ended in high school and my poor car was never the same.) But Bobby was nice and calm and that helped me to not bite the poor girl’s head off.
So now we have the lovely task of being one car down while we get it fixed. Oh the joys.
It was a college girl who hit me. She said she was up all night studying. Um…ok…you really shouldn’t be telling me that. If your insurance company found out you admitted to that they wouldn’t be happy. We called the cops, and he took FOREVER to get there, so I called Katie to tell her we may not make it to packet pickup. Bobby being the calm person that he is handled everything. We got it all taken care of and were on our way again. We made it to packet pickup on time and I got to see this pretty face!
We got our shirts and packets, then headed to our hotel to check in. We found a brick oven pizza place for dinner that was pretty good. After a stressful day, it was nice to just relax and unwind.
We got some frozen yogurt, and then made it back to the hotel for some vegging out before bed. We managed to actually go to sleep early, we had to be up at 5:00 for our half marathon!
QOTD: Have you ever been the recipient of a rear-ending?
