On Monday I left for a business trip to Iowa, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Our team was spending 4 days there, so I obviously packed my running gear (I am still training for a marathon right now, so I gotta keep up with those miles. And nope, I still haven’t decided between Wineglass Marathon or Chicago Marathon. YIKES! Talk about indecisive.)
Anyway I think I fell in love with Iowa. I never thought I would say that, but it is beautiful out there. The air is clean and you don’t feel like dirt is clogging your pours just from walking down the street (cough NYC cough). I do love NYC (although I feel like I have a love/hate relationship with this city), but there is something about the Midwest that is magical. Des Moines had lots of running/biking trails which I ran on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. (Who says you can’t marathon train on the road??)
Yesterday we left Iowa to come back to NYC, and now I”m exhausted. Traveling always takes so much energy out of me, and I find it hard to get back on my “schedule”. But I have to get my energy back soon because on Sunday I am leaving for LONDON!!!! I’m very excited since I have never been before, and I can’t wait to spend some time with my family (it’s a family trip). Any suggests on things I need to eat/see/do while I am there??
I did book a ticket to the Harry Potter Tour at Warner Bros Studios right outside of London. And I’m so freaking excited. The rest of my family declined my invitation to go on the tour, so it looks like I will be going alone. Hopefully a family can adopt me on the tour (aka take a billion pictures of me with my camera).
I am a little worried about marathon training while I am in London, but I think I can get in the miles. The good thing is that my family is pretty active, and I am sure they will want to go to the gym in the morning. I plan on running outside as much as possible (I find it the best way to see everything in a city) but we will see with the unpredictable London weather.
