|The Boulders in Carefree|
This is home, but where am I?
The first half of the week I was in some workshops for work. Not only was I attending – but I lead one of the 3 days. They were in a pretty swanky resort hotel on the complete opposite side of town. During rush hour it would have taken me well over an hour to get there. Annoying. Fortunately, I was able to stay at the resort. That is, I used 3 towels to shower, wore a shower cap, and lounged around in a fuzzy robe. (Totally kidding, if I wore one of those robes, I’d probably either get pregnant or herpies or both.)
The downside was that I really don’t know my way around that part of town. So, since I wanted to do a 7 or 8 mile run, I just asked the front desk where a good spot was to go. “blah blah, run around the mountain, blah, about 8 or so miles”. GREAT! I thought! So, I set out with some water and the thought of around an hour of running. It.was.an.ELEVEN.mile.loop. BLARG. It wasn’t even the distance that was annoying, it was the fact that I was 30 minutes late to the very first day. Oops.
The frustrating part was that it was a big loop, and I could tell at 5 miles that there was no way that I was half way done. It was honestly a good run at around 7:20 pace – a lot of that uphill too!
Swing low, sweet chariots
Because I packed in such a hurry, I forgot one of the most important things that you can forget while traveling: underwear. I guess there isn’t a huge story here, just that I have to go burn some clothes now.
Seriously, when did I get old?? Well first, let me back up....
The best thing about shuttle service to my room is that I didn’t have to feel bad about drinking
