Hmm. It sounds like Pier2Pier was 77 last weekend. I guess I'll bring my wetsuit to Wilmington this weekend.

12:05 PM: It looks like I'm going to be going to Miami TOMORROW. Another mediation. Another 3 hours on an airplane for nothing. Ugh. Hopefully this is the last of the uncontrollable mediations. I need a break. These files are set up under someone else's schedule and then reassigned to me. For me to wiggle into their travel plans. Kind of ticks me off. The only good thing, and I will say it again, is that I get miles and upgrades. So at least I'm not usually sitting back in steerage, I'm either in Economy Plus or First. But still. Ugh.
I am supposed to go to another mediation on Monday, but I sent an independent adjuster to appear for that one. I also have yet another mediation scheduled for tomorrow, but obviously I can't be there in New Jersey if I'm going to be in Florida. Someone else is going to appear for me in NJ.
I will have a nice tropical drink in hurricane ravaged Miami. At least I also get a good couple of meals out of it. I will knock off work early on Friday, bc I'm [...]

Spent the morning getting things arranged here. We had stuff everywhere and the bedroom we chose didn't work out so we had to move everything. Going to go shopping for supplies then start having some fun!

Finally able to get out on the water for a little while. Really looking forward to lots of exploring by kayak!

Got to meet ceildh (Robin) today! She is sweet & sassy & beautiful! Her poor hand is swallowed up in this enormous bandage! :(

Nada today, have a nasty cold that really came on yesterday.  Totally stuffy, just trying to get through a day of teaching.... I'm guessing earliest I'll get back to the pool is Monday, maybe to the gym by Thursday.

Pushups, squats, lunges, leg lifts, crunches, core work, and then a ton of stretching and foam rolling. Legs are tiiiiiiight!

6:58am: I'm not entirely sure what happened yesterday; I got home and did absolutely nothing. I completely ran out of energy and the will to move.
Today, trainer beatdown and then a 3.5 mile run, likely on the treadmill to escape the heat.
I started watching the Ken Burns documentary on the Vietnam War -- I might have made a different decision had I known that it was going to be on at 8pm every day (there's 10 parts!) -- and am really enjoying it. I know next to nothing about the area and its history and it's really interesting to hear about all the forces and complexities involved. As always with a subject like this, there's absolutely no black and white, just shades of gray.

Travel day - in D.C. for a work conference. Was going to check out the hotel gym but honestly was still exhausted from the music festival weekend.

It looks like I've got a pretty good taper going.  Had a very busy week last week and the weekend was shot with cyclefest.  I had planned a long OWS at Balmorhea followed by a long run up the road.  The pool was closed and I was tired and got invited to go eat, so that's what I did.
Slept in yesterday - I needed it after three nights at about 5 hours.

Woke up at 4:20 again. I just laid there until 5:15 trying to will myself back to sleep but it didn't happen. So irritating.

Off to mom's house tonight for more post Irma fun. She has a list of about 6 items that need some attention, simple stuff, but needs to be done. So, a quick run up to Venice after work, and I'll work through her list.
From last night:   
#sunset tonight in #charlottecountyflorida

The plan is Masters tonight. Either that or swim earlier. I have an item to drop off @ the post office so I'm going to walk there at lunch. I'm already selling stuff on eBay! Woot!
