. . . but no bathtub! I was pleased to be told at check-in that we got a room upgrade to a King Executive Room for $15. It did not occur to me ask whether the room had a tub. The room is a large corner room with a large spa-style shower but apparently only the rooms with two double beds have bathtubs. This is not exactly what you would expect at a fairly grand Hyatt Regency hotel but perhaps that is why the price was quite a bit lower than expected.
The location is superb, just a few blocks from the finish, two blocks from the race expo at the Convention Centre and two blocks from Blessed Sacrament Church which is where we will be at 5 :00 p.m. this evening.
The morning was thoroughly relaxing. We got up at 4:00 a.m. refreshed and relaxed and then hit the breakfast buffet around 7:30 a.m. After that we drove a couple of miles to Target and picked up pre-marathon supplies including; Boost and Gatorade.
This unfinished post was written Saturday at which point I realized that I better get my head totally focused on the race. I look forward to reviewing the trip and race in the next few days. We arrived home late Tuesday and I worked yesterday. I felt fine at work but by 8:30 p.m. (5:30 p.m. Pacific time) I was ready for bed. So awake, I am after 9 1/2 hours sleep.
Onwards and upwards!
