FFF, cold runs, showing my age, and bike troubles

Funny Foto Friday:

I went for a solid 5 mile run on Thursday morning. I wanted to go for a quick recovery run on Wednesday night, but daddy (Adam) needed his medicine (wine). I had a little bit of a goodbye happy hour with a buddy I have worked with for 4 years. I had hoped to just have a few drinks, get back to the hotel, and crank out a few miles. Yeahhhh, no dice. Although, the half drunk map-my-run would have been NEAT to check out! Like a squirrel who also was full of wine. So, instead I bagged it and ran Thursday morning. Solid run, although I got a bit chilly because I forgot to pack long sleeves. Fail.

So, I may be aging myself here in my ignorance, but luckily it is the good kind of aging - the kind that makes me look younger. Score! I need something to balance out totally crashing at 9:00pm on a Friday night.....
While staring at the walls in the hotel, I tend to daydream. I got to thinking about what it was like before computers. What did traveling consultants do before they all had laptops? Nearly 100% of my work is done on a computer now and for some reason I can't get the mental picture out of my head of a bunch of people around a slide rule. Can anyone who works in an office setting help me out here?

I’m planning on leaving work a bit early today to HOPEFULLY fix my bike tire once and for all. I’m going to take the tire completely off of the rim (instead of just one side of it) and completely inspect it. If I can find the thorn or whatever is in there I will take pictures.

I have some friends in town and we’re going to go to Sedona, Arizona tomorrow. Should be a GREAT time:

I don't think Sedona is going to look like that tomorrow. Think snow storm. Do you have your tire chains?

I'll be heading south to Tucson.

Good luck with the tire, and have fun in Sedona! I work at home and am on the computer most of the day too... sorry, can't help you out there... lol

I think that before computers, traveling consultants sat in the bar a lot and skipped running. Oh wait.... jk ;)

Before laptops, traveling consultants watched one of the three channels available in hte hotel bar.
