This is the longest ever that I have gone without blogging. I’m behind in every aspect of life lately and that includes running. My first reason since my last post I was prepping for a week-long work trip to California, the other reason was because I was interviewing and accepted a new job at my company. I begin my new role at the end of August. The busy schedule will continue as I’m sure I’ll be swamped as I try to transition and then learn my new assignment. It will be a lot of change, but I’m very excited. The work trip to Cali was very jammed packed, driving to a new city each night covering over 800 miles.

I had to put my running schedule on the back burner. I got in a few miles on some hotel treadmills, but it just isn’t the same. At this point I will take anything, any run I could get in to feel like I was doing something. I left this week exhausted and sluggish in my runs. It has felt much like being sick with the flu, everything feels off and tiring.
I immediately went from Cali to Chicago, where we are staying all weekend to run the Rock and Roll Half Marathon. After my long flight back we ventured out to see The Dan Band at House of Blues. You may remember them from their appearances in the movies “Old School” and “The Hangover” (maybe others I’m not sure). They are freaking hilarious and did not disappoint. We were front and center at the concert and met nice couple that we hope to stay in contact with.
