Three weeks ago, my husband and I bought a second car. Our plan? Was for me to take girlfriend road trips. This Thursday, March 24th, I will be heading to the NCAA fencing championships at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. And? I am bringing a friend who I met at an alumni meet at my alma mater, Columbia University.
I will be live blogging my adventure by updating this post. If you want to watch the action unfold in real time, I will be posting updates on social media at @KathyZucker.
Here are some of the tools I used to plan my trip.
Map to Brandeis Gosman Athletic Center.
Brandeis alumni website listing local hotels.
Watching fencing makes me work up an appetite.
Snag a slice at Anna’s Pizza.
See you in Waltham!
