Road Runners Club of America Convention Part 2
Traveling Southwest, I was a bit nervous considering that the airline has made the news lately for canceling flights. But the trip here was great! Staff were very friendly, and the plane wasn’t crowded at all. I had an entire row to myself.
Midway is the Chicago hub for the airline. It’s a considerably smaller airport than O’Hare, which can be a blessing, I suppose. At least navigating the CTA to the hotel was fairly simple. Midway is the end of the line!
Once we got to the hotel, we quickly realized how famished we were, with our last meal at 8:00 AM, and our bodies thinking it was 3:00 PM, even though it was 2:00 PM local time. We were lucky there was a restaurant around the corner that had a vegan option.
The first day of the conference was really about getting settled and connecting.
We had an evening meetup with the Virginia area RRRC members who are in town for the conference, and then there was a reception.
After the reception, we found another restaurant around the corner that serves Asian poke bowls and ramen with multiple vegan options.
And now it’s time for bed.
Tomorrow will be full of running and seminars!
I hope to have another update tomorrow!
As always, I hope you all are safe and healthy.
