The last 2 days have been a whirlwind!
My day started at 4am as I turned on my 12 cup coffee maker and went to town on my Law exam notes… my exam was at 8am! Talk about cram time! ((And for your information, I did not drink 12 cups of coffee…. I kept it to 10.))
Since my last 2 days have been living and breathing school, workouts have been far from my mind. Even though I usually use them as a study break, I was feeling so unprepared that I just wanted to plow through!
BUT… I know me. And when I get stressed/anxious/confused/mad/emotional with school, I run is needed. So I ran on Tuesday evening… a very nice autumn-ish hour run 🙂
Wednesday however, was a busy as ever and after the exam I rushed to Indianapolis (home) and had 3 hours to pack, run, and shower. Yes, I got a run in. And actually… it was pretty awful! I realized that I had not had a single sip of water all day! The only liquid was my 10 cups of coffee!! No wonder I was dizzy/light-headed/heavy-legs/etc. Body needs water!
Leaving for the airport… my gorgeous momma 🙂
Now I am in lovely Denver (aka my favorite place in the US) for a FULL 2 days of employer panels, focus groups, discussions, and happy hour socials!
The dress code is business casual. What in the world is that?!?! Ya… I think we covered that I am a running shorts/smart-wool socks/Salomon trail runners kind of gal…. Business attire is so over my head. As is dressing “professional” in general. I laughed as I packed my brand new curling iron that I still cannot use…
I mean, what I wore on the plane is pretty much my winter “nice” outfit–leggings, a costco (mens) long sleeve, and a scarf. Boom.
Greatest thing about this trip? — Hampton Inn livin’.
First thing as I walked in late last night… ahhh so relaxing!
Most of you know I have an obsession with Running, Apples, Costco, Clif Bars, and Salomon shoes… well, add Hampton Inn to that list. It is by far my #1 hotel choice! Any vacation I go on, we stay at a Hampton. They are so clean, so accommodating… and the absolute best FREE breakfast.
So I am loving life 🙂 I am not sure my running/workout schedule here yet. Hampton has a very equipped weight room which would be fun to play in before my conferences 🙂
Wow, what a rambley post! I missed you all yesterday obviously!
Have a Fantastic Thursday!
Favorite (or one of your favorite) cities IN the US (lets not get started internationally…)
-I have lots… Denver, Salt Lake City, Frisco (CO), St. George (UT)… and I guess DC and Chicago too 🙂 Running in those cities is incredible!
