Ultrarunners must be able to stay calm and keep a positive mental attitude regardless of what comes our way! Running ultras and being a laid back kind of person means I’m enjoying the journey but seriously the final straw today was my bag not arriving w/me to Australia...My gear bag with my running stuff for the Delirious WEST 200 miler. That’s was the final thing that made me want to sit down & cry, just to get out the frustration of the past 48 hrs of delays and f’d up airline issues. Instead, I sucked it up since I can’t change anything now and continued with my journey filling the frustration with a strong coffee. Thank goodness Perth airport has great food (fresh sushi) and coffee (almond milk cappuccino) because:
.
✈️
1. My gear bag did not make it to Australia, it’s still in LAX, USA and I’m finally in Perth (still have a 5hr flight).
.
✈️
2. I spent an hour making sure said bag was going to get here at LAX and was promised it would, apparently that didn’t matter.
.
✈️
3. I was promised a hotel for an unexpected 24hr layover in Los Angeles but they were unable to deliver so I got my own hotel
.
✈️
5. They almost didn’t let me on my flight at LAX—->Perth, AUS because of all the airport changes to get here they were unable to print my boarding pass for an hour.
.
✈️
5. Yes, the race will be easier and more fun than this ridiculousness! I’d much rather run 200 miles than navigate airports and planes for 50+ hrs
.
✈️
6. DON’T fly Delta Air Lines I’ve never wasted so much time, energy, or had such awful delays and problems and I fly many times every year.
.
✈️
7. @delta has done ZERO to make up for any of this (it all began with mechanical plane failure) 🤷🏼‍♀️ but the employees have been very kind, the system is messed up somewhere though. I’m not the only passenger who has been struggling with delayed travel times, from 28hrs now to 50+ hours and missing check in bag!
.
✈️
8. Even all this crap can’t bring down my excitement about this race, seeing kangaroos 🦘, and reuniting with @solagkev 🇦🇺💘 for a massive, wild adventure down under! #runnersofinstagram #trailrunninglife #run #runner #australia #deltaairlines #delta #athlete #altraathlete #spAltra
