No running today. Hubby wants to beat the rush hour traffic so we left the house at 6:15am for our 9:30 flight to Houston. Traffic was actually fine and we got to airport in 35min. Airport TSA line was long but moved pretty quickly. So we sat at the gate for 2 hours. Hydrate with 12oz gatorade before boarding, 8oz OJ and water in flight.
Landed in Houston at 1:30. Daughter and son-in-law picked us up and went to Costco for quick lunch before heading to their house. Larissa drove me and her dad to the Woodlands packet pick up. Was hoping the pacers would be there, but met Coach Dan Green who was peddling his training programs at one of the exhibits. He appeared to be in his late 50s or early 60s. I asked if he was going to be running tomorrow to which he replied: "NO, the only running I do is "this booth", but I will be at the finish in my TGR booth." He didn't offer any word of advise, encouragement or even asked about our training. When I asked him about the weather forecast, he showed me his phone's app's weather channel and said that it would be perfect race weather. He then went on to talk about his weight loss (20 lbs) in the last three months by limiting red meat and beer. I got the impression that he's not even running anymore. What a disppointed meeting! I went away feeling doubtful that his training program would help anyone improve.
Larissa made us a yummy lasagne dinner. After visiting and playing with the grandkids we retired to bed at 10pm.
