Sitting in the Kansas City airport. Actually I am surprised I am here, mine was the only flight on United to get to KCI yesterday afternoon. That never happens usually mine is the only one to get cancelled for no reason! So you might think that an airport that services two states would be slightly larger and provide more options for the busy traveler. Not so much.
These one day trips all over the map are killing me. I have been re-assigned to a new project which is in the start-up phase. This means that until the end of March I have no specific geographic region that I go to and I don't get to plan my own schedule. So I have no say and I could be in Kansas today and Wisconsin tomorrow - oh wait that is my schedule this week! Also these vists that I am doing now last ummm about 45min-1 hr. Meaning I travel for 2, 3, 4 hours one way for a 1 hour visit. And traveling in the winter out of and into O'hare makes your trip even more exciting! So the workouts haven't been happening as I would like. I did get a 40 min yoga dvd done before I left yesterday but I am feeling kind of yucky today even though I am happy with myself and made excellent food choices (except for the large diet coke I needed to get me through this afternoon). Hopefully I can make it out of here before the snow hits in MO and in Chicago. I may even make it to the gym today but I'll try not to get my hopes up just in case I am trapped here for the night. And this is the reason I always carry an extra pair of underwear during winter travel ;) You never know when you may be stuck in an aiport overnight!
I keep going back and forth about the Chicago Marathon. Really the only time I think my training would not be 100% is the week of the wedding. After which I could resume as normal. The reason is we are taking a very brief honeymoon after the wedding because we don't want to go to a beach in August. So we are taking two! Thank you airline miles and hotel points!!! Our big or REAL honeymoon will be happening in October sometime. I think the training might help relieve the stress of the wedding and may actually make me more organized. I tend to function a little better when I have to make a schedule to fit everything into a day. When I have all day or week to do something it usually doesn't get done. The finances won't break me either...Ahhh - I am so not good with decisions like this! Who knows what I'll decide; I think I have about a month until it gets close to filling up. This could be the season of 10k's and 1/2 marathons only. Or it could be the season I finish my second marathon.
Alright off to start my report that is due in less than 24 hours from the visit. I tell you this study is going to be the end of me!
