When I singed up for the Cape Cod marathon, I didn't give too much thought about the logistics of this race. I figured I would maybe book a room for the night somewhere local or even a couple miles away. When checking into it, I found out that most places were requiring a two night stay for that weekend. The places that didn't were already booked. Grr.. I wasn't on planning on spending $400+ for hotel stay. Then I thought worst case scenario I would wake up at 4-5 in the morning to drive 2+ hrs to then run 26.2 miles to then hop back in my car and drive 2+ hrs back home. hmm... that sounds great..... NOT!
I mentioned this dilemma to my brother in law a couple of weeks ago over a few beers. He mentioned to me that he knew someone that has a vacation house down at the cape and was going to ask if we could use it for that weekend..... SCORE!!!! A week later he called me and said that we got the house from Thursday to Sunday and the best part, at no charge! Woot!!
This is going to be an awesome weekend! A week and a half away. I'm patiently waiting! ......... I can't wait!
