It was such a gorgeous day. I got an email from my new friend and WECT-WSFX reporter, Veronica Macias... Next thing you know, we newbies were on our way to Myrtle Beach!
We stopped at the nearest Starbucks (thanks, Mom for the gift card!) We asked the barista where to people-watch and ended up at Broadway at the Beach! That's where we saw tons of people and at least three news vans. We spotted our sister station, WMBF, and then, I spotted anchor Danner Evans!
Danner is the main anchor at WMBF... and just as important, she's a former Jayhawk. Danner and I both went to KU when Roy Williams was the coach. Of course, both KU and UNC have won national championships since the big switch!
Anyway, tomorrow, thousands of people will be running a half and full marathon in Myrtle. Tonight, runners were hitting the pavement, too-- I swear, we were in traffic for an hour! But, it was definitely worth the trip down and back. What a fun day!
