so my friends tell me that it would behoove me
to book flights & hotel rooms for boston.
the boston marathon.
the very same one that i have yet to even qualify for.
the very thought of it made me a little crazy.
i worried that if i planned ahead, it was the ultimate whammy.
the classic jinx.
i felt like booking flights & reserving rooms was akin to the olympic athlete who, during his/her up close & personal interview makes grand, sweeping & very convincing announcements about how they're going to win the gold medal & then, sadly, go home with nothing.
that said, as of last night - i tried to get over the whamminess of it all and booked flights and reserved a room. and i lay in bed after getting the hotel confirmation & tried to coax my heartrate down.
