The last three days I have been staying in the same hotel as Queen Elizabeth (of England). I have not seen her, but have been very close several times. One day because I went jogging, I missed her by about 5 minutes. But jogging is more important, right?
Also, I have stepped on the red carpet (although the first day I would hop over it because I was unsure of protocol). One of the british attendees at the conference observed this and told me I could step on it, which made walking around the hotel a bit easier:-)
At the end of the day I have gone jogging. There is a castle on the hill right by my hotel. I try to jog it several times. It is tough but may prepare me for any upcoming hills in marathons.
I will post pictures of my adventures when I get back to America later this week.
