Lucky me

Traveling for work has its perks and downfalls (not much sleep, crazy eating schedule). For me, I enjoy getting to explore new places and I especially enjoy getting out for a trail run with a friend local to the area. My only problem is that I am a last minute planner. That is, I tend to arrive in town and realize, "oh! so-and-so lives here, maybe we can go for a run." It is hard to do this to anyone so last minute, but in this most recent trip to Philly, Montrail/Nathan Teammate Barry Lewis more than rose to the occasion. Not only did he get me out for an amazing trail run on Thursday morning, I also got to enjoy his spin class the night before. Only my 3rd spin class to date, but I love the work out and he is a great instructor; super motivating!
Philly run

Barry's friends Drew and Pete joined us for the 2 hour loop Thursday morning in the Wissahickon Valley. It was such a treat to get out on trail for a couple of hours, to get to know Barry a bit and a little more about Philly. The trail system is really close to the city and one could easily get a 20+ mile run in without having to loop over the same trails too often. Great dirt, some rocky sections and rolling hills (nothing too sustained for climbing). Thanks again guys!

Hey Krissy, Sounds like a good time...

I just read ur post on Figuring it out.

I have worked from home for 13 years and I was able to relate to a lot of what you said...

I will never go back to Corporate BUT it is funny while I do travel & mix it up with my on-site appts. and a lot of phone work, some days I may not TALK the entire day--LOL and then think to myself at the end of the day...hmm did I talk today?!

ahhhh Home based Business(everyone THINKS they want it but a lot can't handle it either cuz they need that interaction or they don't have that discipline to WORK and they goof off) NOT for everyone just like being a crazy runner...

but for some I can't think of the other way...sitting in traffic, stressed out & fat --haha cuz that's how I would have been if I didn't make that change 13 years ago to leave that environment.

Geesh I think I just wrote a post --hahaha
