It's a good thing I love driving, because there's been plenty lately. More to come.
Work's been simply crazy with zig-zagging across Orange County from one client to another, only to often head back to the first at the end of the day! Luckily the weather's been good enough for the top to be down.
Tomorrow, it's down to San Diego for a pretty full day. Luckily, I love the gyms down there. I have the best workouts in San Diego 24 Hour Fitness. Maybe it's the change of scenery?
A combination of guilt about work and a desire to not train for it has caused me to abandon the 7 hour drive up and back, just to run a 10k at 8,000 feet. I don't feel all that guilty about it and I justify it by knowing that my coworker now gets to take Friday off to do something important with his kids, rather than work while I drove to Reno.
Instead, I will take a shorter drive to visit some relatives and relax. Road trip starts after the Sand Challenge on Saturday, after which I'll head to Cuyucas and the relatives for the night. On the way back, it's a stop in Santa Barbara at my sister's place.
I love to drive, but it's weird to dread a beautiful drive for work and look forward to a similar drive on the weekend. It's not even the destination. Sometimes I just drive on the weekend, and stop wherever I like. No destination, but still fun. How long 'til Friday?
