While most of you are finalizing your New Year's Eve plans, picking out the perfect little black dress to wear and searching the city over for some bubbly I am getting an oil change, checking the pressure on my tires and deciding between the audio book's Jamily got me for Christmas in preparation for my impending 9 hour drive on New Year's Eve....
So what does driving 9 hours and zombie's have to do with New Year's Eve you ask? Well see back in October while visiting Spike we went and saw Zombieland. (Arguably the best zombie movie EVER) One evening after my return, for whatever reason, we got into a heavy discussion about what we would do if zombie's attacked. (Lots of couple's discuss zombie survival plans right?!?!) Ever the resourceful Redhead I suggested we meet halfway, you know, since I-75 runs directly between us...
Spike: "So where exactly do you propose halfway is?"
Redhead: "Like Kentucky or Tennessee"
Spike: "Um... those are pretty big states, how would we find each other?"
Redhead: "No they aren't. They're short states. We could just call each other."
Now before you go questioning the color of my hair, I never claimed I was the brightest crayon in the box... it seemed logical enough at the time and we both had quite the laugh over it. Afterwards this conversation stuck in my head and it sparked an idea... We should meet halfway for an impromptu weekend!!!
So thus an idea is born and Thursday morning, long before the @ss crack of dawn we both embark on our respective 9-ish hour drives to meet halfway-ish in Chattanooga, TN. Not a single plan has been made further than what hotel we're staying at and the trail to use for our long run. (Priorities! I'm in the midst of marathon training people!) The entire weekend is going to be a total random adventure and who knows what we'll end up doing for N.Y.E. or the rest of the weekend for that matter. If anyone has any suggestions let us know! Otherwise expect quite the recap upon my return... This southern girl is headed up to the hills of Tennessee! Good thing I picked up some running pants recently! Forecast is calling for sunny but 30-40 degrees all weekend! Brr!!!
Listening to: Black Eyed Peas - "Meet me Halfway"
