Okay, maybe not where I am, but guess where I’m going. Hint: I’m connecting from Denver through this place to get to Newark. You might guess Philly or Chicago, but those were oversold. You might guess Dulles, but the DEN to IAD leg was delayed and I wouldn’t make the connection for the IAD to JFK leg. Give up yet? Come on, where is the natural connection between DEN and NYC?
The correct answer is: Los Angeles! Because clearly that makes sense.
The story is, the GA who originally promised me a hotel room for taking a flight tomorrow morning screwed up – there are literally no hotel rooms in Denver due to the Democratic National Convention. Therefore the only solution is to fly me to LAX where I can catch the redeye, sleep on the plane, and arrive at EWR early tomorrow morning. The best part? The leg from LAX to EWR is also oversold, so I can maybe VDB yet again. I’m already lining the marathons I want to do up in my mind…
I’m also starting to think I should just put United in my new “sponsors” section of the blog, where I thank all the wonderful companies who’ve offered me their products and services to help me run. (Look for a New Balance shoe review to come after I receive my free kicks).
