June 21, 1017Day 1
Our flight didn't leave until noon, so A and I decided to join the June Territory Sunrise Run at North Table. A was excited because she had never run there, and I was excited because North Table is my favorite place to run in the foothills.
The run started at 5:15, so we were up by 4 to make sure we had all our stuff and to drive there, allowing enough time to use the bathroom. We knew a few people that were going to be there, but ultimately ended up running with Jennifer and Michelle.
Train to DIA took about a half hour and was otherwise uneventful. We were dropped off just outside the hotel and it was only a minute walk to get to security. The line was not that long and we got through in probably 15 minutes. We were at our gate probably 90 minutes before departure. Before we boarded we picked up Quizno's.
We managed to all get seated in the same row for the 3.5 hour flight to JFK. We were flying Delta, so we had a lot of free TV/movie options. I watched "La La Land," which I didn't really like that much - the ending bothered me!
The plane landed on time, and we had hours until our departure to Reykjavik, but since we didn't have seat assignments we wanted to get to the gate as soon as possible, in hopes of getting seats together again.
We were hoping our biggest issue would be the gate attendant stringing us along with WHEN we could get our seat assignments. Got burgers and beers at the Shake Shack next to the gate, and when we finally got our seats, we were all together again (although, turns out, it would be in the second to last row of the plane).
