So I check into my room and get changed, ready to get in anything I can. I start out trying to get into the hotel workout room, I wanted to avoid running in the hood, and see how much I weighed. Two birds with one stone, you know? Anyways, the door wont open. I try my card like 20 times, and even try to use it to pick the lock. It doesn't work. I walk down to the lobby and it turns out, I have the key from the hotel I stayed in last night... Damn it. Anyways, now that I have the right key I go back up to the workout room and try again. My new, real key, still doesn't work. I go back down to the lobby, and they think I am an idiot. They send a maintenance man up with me to show me how to use my key. Anyways, turns out the door is broken and when I am heading up to my room, almost 3 hours later, it is still broken and they can't get in. Haha, I'm not that dumb!
Anyways, my run. At this point it's like 8:40 and I still need to run. I decide running through the hood is better then not running. I head out the door of my hotel and take a right. For the next 4 minutes I think I'm going to get lit up a la a Biggie Small's song. However, once I get about 5 blocks away (under a train and past the McDonalds) it turns into one of the nicest little suburban streets I've run on. I then head into an awesome looking Civil War park. I have to turn around, because as much as I like running, I also want to eat before I go to sleep. I end up getting in about 30 minutes (29:57 for those of you keeping track at home) and feel like it is better then nothing.
This was my 12th straight day of running, and I've been feeling a bit better every day. I ran 50ish miles last week, and am on pace to run about 60 this week. I just need to do a 12 miler tomorrow or sunday, then an easy 10 the other day. I think I'm about ready to start running close to 10 miles a day. I ran 9 miles with Owen, B Clark and Peaches and felt awesome (other then the fact that ever since I tried to assure Ben Stern that my nipples don't bleed when it rains, they bleed when it rains). Anyways, I'm off to bed because I have work all day tomorrow and then all morning sunday, so I should go to bed.
