Today I woke up around 8:30 after getting 5 hours of sleep, and I quickly got ready to go to the run. Nacho, Maxi, and I left the house around 9 and took the bus over to the train station 9Santiago is a big city that requires various modes of public transportation). When we got to the train station, Nacho realized that his metro card only had enough money on it for two people, so Maxi and I took the train while Nacho took a nearby bus.
Maxi was super nervous to ride the subway alone, but I was completely calm. I never worry about these things because I figure the worst that can happen is that I get lost, and there will always be someone willing to help me. It would just be another adventure. After two months of exchange, I am already pretty good at just rolling with the punches and not worrying too much. We got off where we were supposed to without a problem, and met Nacho outside. Then we walked for a while to the start of the run. We got our numbers and then talked and stood in the shade and waited for the race to start. During the run, Nacho and Maxi run faster than I do, but they slowed down for me and I had a lot of fun running with them. It was also really cool to run through Santiago and see the pretty and important buildings.
Around 9, we finally started getting ready to head back to Rancagua (once again I was a little ticked off by their lack of consideration for the fact that we all had school in the morning and when we got back to Rancagua we were going to have to shower and get ready and everything). We left around 9:30 and got back to the house at 11. I was way too tired to shower or do anything at all, so I literally just fell into bed and went immediately to sleep.
