today was a full day of conference, with at least one helpful session (it’s so difficult choosing a session). i did take the afternoon off sessions so i could get a run in. the fitness center here is HOOOOT and there were NO FANS on the treadmills. i slogged through 4 miles and was soaked by the time i got through, but i did it!
after the sessions and my hot run, we headed to king street/old town for some sightseeing and thai food. we got off the metro and headed down toward the potomac. king street has a lot of little shops that vary all over the spectrum with goods. there were bookstores, paper stores, furniture stores, kitchen stores, adult stores, cigar stores, etc. etc., and it was cobblestone and very east coast feeling. we stopped at a bar for a pitcher of beer, then headed to the thai place. mmm the curry was good! i’ll have to see if i can find a place in st. cloud (or make my own i guess).
one thing i don’t necessarily like about the east coast is the humidity. oy! i was sweating just standing around, and it was mid 80s. i choose the wrong clothes to bring – should’ve brought nothing but polyester. the thai place had no AC, but i did sit right in front of the fan.
after thai, we headed back up king street and stopped at a cupcake store, where i got a red velvet and a chocolate chocolate. if they’d’ve had the pb chocolate, i would’ve gotten that one.
headed back to our hotel by way of sherry’s liquor and stayed up for a bit. fun day!
