I am down at a conference in Jacksonville for a few days. Later this morning I give a presentation on my research. I must be a little nervous about the presentation, because I did not sleep very well last night. So, I got up early, put on my running gear and went out into the early morning drizzle and did a 10k around the Jacksonville waterfront. I wasn't very creative, I just did the loop around the Acosta bridge and the Main St bridge 3 times, plus getting to and from the hotel. There were a few times that I was not feeling it, and was tempted to cut it short to head back for a coffee and a shower, but I stuck with it. I finished at 49:15 for a 7:57 pace.
Sometimes you are really feeling it, sometimes you aren't but you do it anyway!

As a follow up, I was concerned that I would gain on the trip (it is hard to eat as well traveling as you do at home). I was pleasantly surprised at my morning weigh in today to have no change from prior to the trip. Now if I can have the same results after Thanksgiving and Christmas!
