You know when you go on a work trip and take your running clothes because you are convinced you are going to run? And then your scheduled becomes so packed that you can’t?
I’ve been in Sacramento since Thursday afternoon for a community college journalism conference. I have six students with me. We leave late tonight, after a fancy dinner where I’ll be wearing a dress and heels.
My students have been scheduled with back to back breakout sessions. I’ve been running around trying to keep track of money, hotel reservations and making sure everyone gets fed.
And now we’ve checked out of our hotel rooms and deactivated our room keys, right when I could have had a chance to check out the hotel treadmill. I don’t know the area well enough to not get lost on a run.
It’s a good thing I ran a marathon last weekend. I’m just going to call this “recovery” time.
