Thursday 2/28/13

Holy crap!  I just realized that this is the last day in February.  How did 2 entire months of this year go by already?  This means that 1/6 of this year is already behind us.  WTH?!

I'm in Washington DC this week for a work conference.  It is 10-15 degrees warmer here then at home and there is no snow.  Although, my knee is still a bit stiff, I felt like I needed to go out and run.  It would be a travesty if I didn't take advantage of this opportunity. 

The view from the elevator this morning.
I was literally jonesing all day to get out there.  And at 5:00 I promptly went to my room, changed my clothes and hit the road!
I ran down around DuPont Circle.  There was a ton of car traffic and foot traffic.  There are a lot of intersections too.  I was reminded of the movie American President when Annette Benning barges into the Oval Office and tells Michael Douglas to "just stay away from DuPont Circle, I hear it's murder this time of day."  Yep!  At 5:30pm, DuPont Circle is definitely a crazy busy place.  But it was an amazing run!  It felt pretty good physically but mentally and emotionally I enjoyed every single step of that run.  This is why I run.  I love the energy that I give to the environment around me and I love the energy I get from all of my surroundings.  Whether I am running at a local park or in an unfamiliar city there is an energy that you pick up from whatever is around you and when you are really in tune with that, you just hum along like you are one with it all.  God, it was so amazing for me today.  These are the moments that make me a true runner and not just a fitness runner.
I wasn't really looking forward to this trip so I put off doing any of my packing until the last minute.  So it shouldn't surprise you that I forgot some things.  When I got to the hotel and began to unpack  my things, I realized that I had forgotten to pack my dress pants.  So, here I am in DC for a work conference with a pair of running pants and a pair of yoga pants.  I remembered to pack my dress tops and sweaters and heels.  Just no pants.  Who does that?!  This put me on a mission to find pants.  I walked down to DuPont Circle area, knowing there are a lot of shops around there and praying that I can find some pants at a reasonable price.  This is not a cheap town.  So, I find a United Colors of Benetton store.  I don't think I have been in one of those stores since I was in high school.  Anyway,  they have some great dress pants on their end of season clearance rack.  Score!  I buy two pairs.  Black and Khaki.  They fit great, except for the length.  Even with my heels, they touch the floor.  Oh well, it's the best I can do.  They are great pants though.  I'm gonna get my mom to hem them for me when I get home. 
Tomorrow morning I'm gonna hit the hotel gym and get my own version of an extreme workout in and then push some weights around with my legs.  Just because I'm out of town doesn't mean I have to get out of my routine.  BAM!  Training doesn't stop just because you aren't home.
