Once Was Not Enough...

NKOTB, Repeat!! That's right. Seeing them once after 17 years was not enough by a long shot. Not enough for me. Not enough for one of the friends I went with…It just was, not, enough!! So…friend I went with (and also saw NIN a month later thank you very much) was watching some of the stuff on their site and they announced a cruise. That’s right. Three days on a ship with them. Talk about fun!! (OK, yes, for the 3000 women on the cruise it would be fun) But it was quite expensive…and sold out in 48 hours…(cheap tickets were $900, plus fees, plus flight there, plus hotels, yikes) but it was over my birthday, that would’ve been quite fun. But things happen, we didn’t book and it sold out. Then, they added more tour dates. But this time to smaller venues…places they didn’t see first time around. None real close, Nashville, my friend mentioned. Maybe…Niagara Falls, that would be cool. She has a friend in Toronto and what do you know, she likes them too. It was also a Saturday show…tickets went on sale yesterday. Well, you know, we did VIP last time, could we really not do it again?? So as of yesterday we bought tickets, have a hotel booked (room at the casino they are playing at in fact thank you very much, even though they are gouging it, but oh well, it’s also only a few blocks from the falls) and I’m working on flights. Kicking myself for not trusting we would get the tickets (we were on right when they went on sale, had them bought within 2 or 3 minutes of them going on sale). It’s actually good though we bought them for VIP, the other tickets that went on sale today through Ticketmaster…I was able to get 2, but not the 3 we planned and/or needed. The venue appears to seat somewhere between 2000 and 2500…unlike the 12000 we were there with last time…will be much more intimate. I’m excited. Plus hey, I get to run my last 20 miler someplace other than at home.

seriously cracks me up, but I love that it makes you happy and the funk is gone!

So there is a lifetime fitness here! I'm not a member so I need to find out if I can still do the testing, but I'm muy excited!

That's great that you are going to see them again! I really enjoyed their show here, so I don't blame you for wanting a repeat performance. Plus it sounds like a great weekend away, and a great place for a long run. Have fun!

After the horrible cold you've had to deal with, you deserve some happiness. Toronto's a great city. How exciting that you're running Boston! How many miles do you run a week during training?
