To ensure that I woke up in time for the taxi.
Direct route = 0.55 miles
Roundabout way = 0.88 miles (plus through a mall parking lot)
Boarding passes with no problem. Security check was smooth. Clif Bar while waiting in line. Boarded at 5am. Quick 1.5 hour flight to Washington DC by 7am. Napped for 45 minutes on the plane. 1 hour layover. I grabbed a mini Cinnabon for a second breakfast and walked a couple laps in the terminal to stretch out the legs. Waited to board. 2.5 hour flight to Fort Myers. Big plane and about half full. I had a window seat and the other two seats were wide open. Ending up laying out at one point and napped for a short time. Ginger ale and orange juice to ease the stomach.
Five Guys?! Maybe not at 7:30am.
Wide open seats. Sweet!
All cooked in bags.
Out at 5:30pm for 7 miles (49+) with some strides at the end. The forecast said thunderstorms and rain at 8pm. It arrived early. Poured rain, but I couldn't have be happier. It was sorta muggy outside and it broke the humidity. When it's in the 80's, rain is never a bad thing
Back to stretch and eat some dinner with the guys. Spaghetti and meatballs. Iced and relaxed.
Solid first day. No speed bumps and my first time flying 100% alone. Airports are great places to people watch.
