Checking in from Rome.

20 September 2016

Hello! Well the half marathon was a bust. It was 75 and 100% humidity. I couldn’t cool off and ended up running the third slowest half marathon (road race) of my running career at almost 2:24. It was pretty miserable. But I finished, side by side with BB, and that’s all that matters. I’m excited I can do those things even when they suck, but I’m really looking forward to having a good race after three tough ones in a row. They’ve all been hot and humid, but I’m starting to wonder if something isn’t wrong with me. I get dehydrated, overheat, and have to walk. Over and over again now.

My talk in Rome was reasonably well-received, and now I have the rest of the week to work on my presentation for Canada, see a few sights, and enjoy a few conference morsels that are interesting. But now it’s late, I’m tired, and it’s time to go to bed. I’ll try to check in again before I head home Sunday.
