Rise and shine, it’s running time! (FYI: I’m doing Monica’s signature move! HA!)
And, apparently, it’s jazz hands time too. I have no idea why standing in a teepee inspired me to do jazz hands. Random.
This morning, Monica and I went for a run before our day started with Silk. We ran 4 miles with a couple of walk breaks mixed in (perhaps I was feeling the altitude?) and then we walked a mile back to our hotel.
Since we live on opposite coasts of the country, Monica and I always make it a point to run together when we see each other. Considering how far apart we live, we’ve actually run together quite a bit over the years. Monica even ran the last few miles of my first marathon with me! What a good friend!

After our run, I went back to my hotel room, showered, and got ready for the day. Silk suggested room service for breakfast, so I ordered eggs, bacon, potatoes, and fresh fruit.
I also ordered some decaf coffee with soy milk.
How awesome is room service? I don’t order it often, but when I do, it always makes me feel so fancy.

Question of the Day
What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever run?
On the top of my list is the Charles River in Boston. Other favorites: San Francisco by the bay and Newport, Rhode Island along the oceanfront by all of the gorgeous mansions. I love running when I travel and exploring new places.
