Oh man - the fun I've been having.
The new job is going well. I'm insanely busy, but it comes with the territory and, for whatever reason, it makes me really happy to be headed in a million directions.
I have to tell you about the most surreal day I've had in a while...
Last week I made a trip to Florida. The day started at 3 AM - had to grab the 6AM flight to Houston then on to Tampa. By 12 PM we had landed, picked up our bags and the rental and were on our way. Our team lead had the foresight to get a rental car with a GPS - something I will never ever be without on future trips. It was the most amazing device I've ever seen. We named our GPS Gina.
By 1:30 we had checked into the hotel and were sitting in a beach cabana eating lunch - it was the closest place to the hotel. We were 100 yards from the Gulf. Less than an hour later we were sitting outside of the principals office at the elementary school we had travelled to. After 5 more hours of work we were headed back to the hotel - Gina was leading the way. Finally we found ourselves at another cabana eating fresh shrimp and reviewing the events of the day. Not bad for 18 hours.
The hotel was great. Snapped a few (crappy) pics.
Out the front window - toward the Gulf of Mexico:
Off the balcony toward the bay:
Training has fallen off sharply. I did not do the HIM or Jack's. I wasn't prepared for the HIM and I ended up with a foot injury that kept me away from Jack's last week.
I'm still on track to do the LiveStrong Ride. Training resumes this weekend.
Looks like I'm headed to New Orleans soon. I'll keep you posted.
See ya out there...
