Unlike Florida, where I lived out of my own house, this will be my first trip since I began training that doesn't provide me all the comforts of home. I have to stay at two separate hotels, there isn't a nice familiar neighborhood in which I can run, and there aren't going to be any kitchens with all my own foods. This will be a challenge. I don't want to gain back the same 5 lb I gained while in Orlando (I would LOVE to stop gaining and losing the same 5 lb!). And I don't want to miss a run.
Truly, I should do what I want, which is to run, eat normally, and come home with wonderful new memories and experiences.
Up next: a recap and some pics!
