Well, the good news is that I think I have learned how to successfully conquer jetlag. The secret? Exercise!
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!
