Beating the St. Louis Blues

At the beginning of the week, I was off to St. Louis for some much needed management training. You know the place, the Gateway to the West...

It was a great trip. Joining more than 50 of my colleagues from around the country, Mexico and Canada, we spent a lot of in "class" discussing case studies and hearing from senior leadership. To keep from suffering from that "cooped" up feeling, I had to run!

My favorite part of the trip - the opportunity to run with one of my colleagues from Vancouver. We had a great run and were able to spend some quality time talking about our shared passion for running. One of the cool things she shared was that she is participating in a running study that is looking at minimalist running. Definitely sounds cool.

While there, I got two good runs in around the Washington University campus. Thankfully the weather cooperated and the runs were early enough to be super enjoyable.

The runs pretty much allowed me to keep on track with my ING NYC Marathon training plan. I have my last long run this weekend. Looking forward to getting it done and then beginning the taper!

Thanks for the pics, Jen!
