Heading to San Diego for a conference

I haven't spent much time in the blogging world this last week.  I was out of the office two days for work - that simply messes up the "normal" routine.

Anyway - I did get a couple of nice runs in this week and a little work on the elliptical machine at the fitness center at work.  I ran 2 miles of Tuesday - 4.5 miles on Wednesday with 1/2 hour on the elliptical after work and another 3 miles on Thursday.  Easy pace 9:30 paces for all of the runs.

Right now it is 1 PM Saturday afternoon and I am sitting in the Denver Airport - waiting for my flight to San Diego.  I am attending a conference in San Diego on Mon - Wed next week and decided to head out today instead of tomorrow.  This will allow me to get a really nice run in tomorrow morning in San Diego ;-)  - using that time to explore the city.

The rest of the day will be spent doing what ever I want!!!!  No coordinating - no talking (unless I want) and no time frames . . . simply do - or not!

I am staying at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel - which looks to be a very nice hotel.  I think it is near the Gaslamp Quarters district, which contains small shops and restaurants.  I am spending my layover time here at the airport to CATCH up on blogs . . . and figure out my running path for tomorrow morning.  I might be running along the Embarcadero.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  Time to start my walking - I have another 2 hours to kill and figure I will walk and walk and walk . . . better than sitting on my behind.  Then I am going to check out what everyone has been doing in bloggy land.  Good luck to local runners doing the Girls on the Run RUN in Waunakee - Jamie at Running Diva Mom - HERE and Chelsea at Early Runner - HERE were both going to run.  Hope you had great runs.

I will be blogging and running in San Diego!!!!
