Some of you might have heard me go on and on about 3 of these
obsessions loves of mine-
Costco, Salomon Shoes, Cliff Bars
((Seriously, my life would be complete if I were asked to be the spokeswomen for Salmon and Cliff Bar.))
Well, I have a 4th love. It is probably not really 4th on the list, but tied for a top 3 spot.
Yes, the hotel chain. Oh my gosh I will never stay anywhere else as long as I live. Hampton Inn’s make me so so HAPPY!
They easily have the most comfortable bed, a plethora of pillows (I use 4 and I hate when hotels only give you 2…like what?), free coffee/tea/apples/oranges at all hours, and lastly but MOST IMPORTANTLY….. their Free Breakfast is to DIE FOR.
Breakfast buffet of pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, 4 different cereals, granola, fruit fruit and more fruit, bagels, english muffin, hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, yogurt… do I really need to keep going? It is the bomb.com.
There is a Hampton literally 2 miles from my house. And I SO BADLY want to sneak in for breakfast. I am trying to decide if I can pull this off. I mean how closely do they know who is in their hotel? I am such an early riser, that when I am actually a guest at their hotel and I am first in the lobby for breakfast in the morning, generally no one is really around to notice. I read the free USA Today and eat, eat, eat. Tis truly glorious! So I wonder… How hard can it be to “sneak in” one morning for a great breakfast buffet?
I want to try it, because I am that obsessed.
In totally unrelated news, tomorrow is Saturday, meaning Long Run (yay!) with my summer/marathon group of “elders” (They are also my 5 @ 5 group.) And I say elders because, well, I am the youngest by 25 years. But man can these guys run…age don’t matter!!
They run every Saturday morning at 6am, a minimum of 10 miles. Different people in the group will go further depending on when their next marathon is and what their training schedule calls for. But no matter what, 10 miles is always on the books. I love coming home and being able to depend on this group to run and be there. And I love that they start early! So perfect, especially for these summer months!
Do you guys have a hotel chain that you would risk getting arested for just to sneak in and…eat/sleep/swim/etc ?
Set running group or set distance that you do every week with people you can depend on?
