And So It Begins

Suitcase Number One
Destination: San Francisco
Needed: Friday and Saturday
Contents: Slacks, blouses, amenities, and general stuff I will need for two days at a reading conference in San Francisco (contains evidence of student work...and I remembered to pack underware!). Includes one set of workout clothes because I am an eternal optimist and one dress that I may wear to Saturday's Dinner Event (see suitcase #2), or I may not...because I will be, after all, in San Francisco, and I may have to go shopping.

Suitcase Number Two
Destination: San Diego Airport Pickup and then Coronado
Needed: Saturday
Contents: One pair of black pumps. One pair of silver sandals. Faux Fur Coat, Jewelry. To be filled with other items I decide I may want to wear and which I desperately try to describe to Walter, before demanding that he hand the phone to DramaGirl because the girl knows where EVERYTHING I own is! To be delivered to me when I arrive in San Diego Saturday afternoon so that I can finish dressing in the airport or hotel ladies room. (oh yes, I'll take pix).

Suitcase Number Tree
Destination: Huntington Beach - Surf City 1/2 Marathon
Needed: Sunday Morning (about 4am)
Contents: Every, last, imaginable item I might potentially need to run a 1/2 marathon in every, last, imaginable kind of weather. Does not currently contain the Garmin (plugged into a wall and charging) or iPod (which is with me)

Wish me luck this weekend, cuz I'm on my way to do a different kind of Tri. 3 events-3 cities-3 days. I can do this!


  1. Leading the life of a rock star, without the roadies. ;)

    Have a safe, fun trip!

  2. You can totally do 3 days, 3 cities and a half marathon. Have fun!!

  3. Busy weekend! I hope to see you in Surf City! Have fun! And if I don't get a chance, good luck on the half!

  4. Have a safe, fun weekend! May all your bags show up in the right spots-I'd hate to have to read how you had to run the 1/2 in those black pumps and faux fur!!

  5. Have a great time and keep that running close, everything else can be replaced!

  6. Wow, what a weekend ahead of you! Good luck!

  7. Dang, I hope there are LOTS of Mimosas after this weekend. Girl, you have your work cut out for you. Good luck, I am sure there will be lots of good stories.

  8. Whoa! Talk about planning!! Glad you finally got on your delayed flight last night, enjoy SF and good luck on Sunday, can't wait to hear about it!!

  9. Wow! I could never pack for this...I'm such an overpacker. I would take three suitcases for ONE city, ONE event.

  10. I like your idea of a tri! I'll look or you Sunday morning!
