I left for a conference in San Diego early Tuesday morning. There were four of us from work, three who were going mostly to attend a workshop on how to prepare for an accreditation review, and our new dean.
My roommate and I must have been in our administrative assistant's good graces, because the room she booked for us had this view:
We were less than a mile from the beach, and I walked there every morning. Without setting an alarm, I woke every day at 5:30 a.m., so I got dressed quietly and left the room so my roommate could sleep and shower, and ran or walked and then showered when I got back.
It's easy to daydream that I would be in much better shape if I never had to deal with Polar Vortexes. But there was some pretty amazing food in Mission Beach, so I might have other struggles, especially with all the freshly-made tortillas.
I got to meet up with the lovely Margo, and it was easy to forget we hadn't seen each other in person since mid-June, especially since I listen to all her podcasts. I'm really looking forward to visiting with her again at Fitbloggin'. I had to order something with tortillas in it...
I ate a lot of restaurant meals, but I was still feeling really good, probably from all of the walking and the fresh air. I couldn't resist taking a few selfies on the beach. I love this peachy top, which brightens up my face whenever I wear it.
Mostly, though, I took pictures of the beach:
I didn't get a lot of other workouts in, but I have definitely boosted my step count.
