(Can you see the tiny slow flakes in my hair?)
The trip up was uneventful. I traveled on Southwest and they allowed me to check my carry-on and my poster for free! Best. Airline. Ever. Once we got our bags, Kai and I took a Lyft ride to the hotel where we met up with Shakeva and Caleed!
(the kids were enjoying the flurries)
We walked the city for a bit in search of gloves for me (Kai had mine because hers went m.i.a somewhere in transit) and a nice top for me to wear to the conference tomorrow (because I left the one I was planning to wear in the dryer at my house 🙈).
And eventually we finished shopping (and exploring downtown) so Kai and I went to get something to eat...
(we shared the hanger steak with squash and [the worst tasting] mushrooms [I've ever had])
I also ordered a "small plate" of crispy brussel sprouts...
The conference starts tomorrow and I'm getting excited! I initially planned to run before the conference but based on the temperature (and how dark it will be at 5:30am in downtown Pittsburgh), I think I'm just going to run after. I'm glad I ran this morning before I left South Florida though, and even more glad that my Garmin got resurrected from the "coma" that it slipped into during my run last night. Today's run was just a mile...
(I'm looking forward to the day when 10 minutes is my "easy" pace)
Before I sign off for the night, I saw this funny meme on Facebook that I have to share with you...
(my daily conversations with Kai about her room go just like that 😉)
Have you ever been to Pittsburgh?
What's your favorite thing to do when you travel to a new city?
What's your goal/dream running pace?
Good luck at your conference tomorrow!ReplyDelete
I lived in Pittsburgh for 4 years in college (Hail to Pitt!) and it's my favorite city! If you have time you should go to the Cathedral of Learning on Pitt's campus - it's where I used to have classes and it legit looks like Hogwarts inside!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the recommendation Kristen! I'll try and see if I can check it out :)Delete
