Greetings from another new city – San Francisco! After a day filled with meetings and a very interesting flight down via Alaska Air.The below picture of my oh so lovely dinner is a perfect example of just how luxurious business travel is – not. Our terminal had only two dinner options: Burger King or a small bagel cafe.
I crashed in bed at 9:30pm and didn’t budge until 6:30am. Needless to say I was beyond exhausted. When I woke up this morning I definitely felt like I was on West Coast time but wasn’t fully rested. In fact, even though I had the morning to go through emails and complete multiple conference calls, all I wanted to do was go back to bed. Luckily, Theodora was my accountability buddy and convinced me that a quick run outside would make me feel better. I ended up running 4 miles along the Embarcadero at a faster than normal pace. I may or may not have seen a 7 in front of one of the miles. Okay, yes that mile was downhill for half of it but still. I’m not sure where the energy came from but I hope I can bottle it for Saturday. These pictures are also proof that I’m getting better at running and taking pictures simultaneously because the only one that was taken standing still is the one of my feet.
Now I’m spending the rest of my day in business lunches, meetings and a dinner with the customer. Am I rested? Nope. Do I feel 100 times better after this run and fresh air? You bet!
I hope you guys have a great Thursday and if you’re in the Southeast United States I hope you’re staying safe from the first tropical storm of the season.
What’s your favorite running city?
