I hate hotel treadmills

I am in Chicago for work this week so I am forced to get my runs in on the hotel treadmill; now I shouldn't complain because I am getting my runs in while I travel, which can be very difficult but it has been so hot & stuffy in the hotel gym it is making me dread my runs. 

I had my first bloggy meet up Sunday evening with the absolutely lovely Marcia from Running off at the Mouth I am stealing her blog photo as I forgot to pack my USB cable and can't upload the photo that I took; we can credit one of the teenagers that worked at Panera for this photo.

We had such a great time and we are such wild women that we closed Panera Bread - watch out!  It was great to meet Marcia, chat about running, kids, and life.  I hope this is the first of many bloggy meet-ups and I highly recommend it!

You absolutely have to go check out the cool challenge that Amanda at Run to the Finish is sponsoring; she asks us to select three changes that you can make over the next 30 days.  I selected:

1.  Picking up the phone to call instead of using email
2.  Being less judgmental and more accepting
3.  Increase my productivity at work

I hope I haven't bitten off more than I can handle.......have a great day


  1. Hi Kathy,
    I love Chicago!! Bonus...you got to meet Marcia:) How fun!!

    I love you list of changes to make within the next 30 days. I could have them as a goal for myself too:) You can do it!! Have a great week!

  2. yeahh for meet ups!!! I agree the hotel isn't the best, but better than nothing.

    why is picking up the phone so hard? I swear I think about it but I just don't do it

  3. Hi Kathy!
    Saw your blog on my statcounter and just wanted to stop by and say hi! I'm really enjoying reading your blog...I used to LOVE running until my knees told me I couldn't do it so much anymore. If you make the Boston Marathon, we'll have to meet up for a drink while you're out here!

  4. Have you ever done Hood to Coast before? This will be my first time and I'm really excited (and nervous!)!!

  5. Hey, I notice you visited the hotel gym. Would you mind writing a review at http://www.HotelGymReview.com?
