Another Monday Tuesday summary of posts here! This one goes back a couple of weeks, but only posts that are still relevant! I hope things are going well for you all with your travel and summer plans!

I had a marathon in Boston the first Saturday of September and was into my training program, flights booked, everything. Well, the marathon organizers went and changed the date – 10 weeks out. This is not ok (even with a single date later), especially since I have yet to hear back from my e-mails about a race refund. So, now I’m out of my fall marathon! It’s ok, though, I will plan on hitting the January marathon with more intensity!

On the travel angle, I did book the inaugural 787 Dreamliner Turkish flight between Turkey and Amsterdam (not the inaugural 787 flight but the first on this route). I will be flying it in September long-haul anyway but wanted to get a nice glimpse earlier than that, so hopefully it will work out!
