Today was spent traveling, traveling, traveling!
This time…for work. Not quite as fun as the honeymoon, but still, not bad!
Tim dropped me off at the airport around 8:30 for my 10:30 flight. Unfortunately, said flight was delayed until noon, so I spent quite a lot of time sitting around doing nothing!
Before I knew the flight was delayed, I bought a carryon lunch—turkey and cheddar from Quizno’s and a bunch of fruit.
Unfortunately the fruit was kind of gross. KCI doesn’t have the best healthy options. Oh well.
I ate the sandwich about 11:30 before I boarded, and the fruit at about 2 mid-flight. Got in to Fort Lauderdale around 5, and was happy to see my hotel accommodations were pretty fancy! See, for example, awesome balcony on my room:
Flatscreen TV and plenty of room to spread out…
And a beach view in the lobby!
After yesterday, all I wanted to do was run. Well.
The comments yesterday seemed pretty split on “keep trying the orthotics” and “ditch ‘em.” After thinking about it—I confess that I probably did not break them in perfectly before running in them. I’ve been SO busy lately, and they don’t fit in my work shoes, and the weather’s been sucky, that I did a bit of walking in them and then immediately went running.
So, my plan for now: try my new wide, neutral New Balances without orthotics for running. Once I get back to KC after this trip, I’m going to start from scratch and break these in with WALKING and daily wear. I may even ask my boss if I can wear sneakers a few hours a day!
I am a sucker for individual TVs at each treadmill. I watched Cash Cab!
Also, this gym was awesome because they had ice water with orange and lemon and lime in it, and a FRUIT BOWL!
I ran back to my room, showered and dressed quickly, then went to dinner. Conference food can be sketchy, but I was happy with the options here!
About half my plate was mixed greens with carrots and ‘shrooms and vinaigrette, and the rest was steamed carrots, wild rice, a small slice of beef, and a wheat roll.
And a Sam Adams. And, okay, when I found out there was no dessert…a glass of Cabernet.
I’m off to take a sunset beach walk—have a great night!
Do you like to travel? I love airports, strangely, and seeing new places, but I tire of it quickly and miss home! I’m a homebody!
