Well, the good news is that I think I have learned how to successfully conquer jetlag. The secret? Exercise!
Good Morning, Philadelphia
This morning we all woke up around nine, which surprisingly felt like nine to me and not six like I thought it would feel like. Nine= cool. Six=not cool. I think it helped that I was just so exhausted last night after flying all day and then working out that I fell right to sleep at a quasi-normal hour.
I grabbed a piece of toast with peanut butter and then we were out the door! Anne and Sabrina power walked while Tina and I ran for 30 minutes. It was gorgeous—I LOVE running in new cities!
It was hot though. Very, very hot and very, very humid. I’ve lost all my Floridian-ness, I guess, because the run was pretty challenging for me. Oh, humidity…I don’t miss you at all. Neither does my hair.
When we got back to the apartment we made breakfast. I had an omelet (3 egg whites + 1 yolk) with fruit and a small smoothie that Sabrina made me. The smoothie had strawberries, bananas, water, ice and a little bit of skim milk. Drank with a straw, obviously.
We don’t really have too much of a plan today other than the reader meet-up at 3pm and then we have to be at the cocktail party and dinner for the conference this evening. I think we’re just going to walk around, grab lunch in a bit and just soak it all in. I’m SO glad I’m here and from what I’ve seen so far, I love Philly!
