This morning I am boarding a plane for Cincinnati, Ohio for a long, happy wedding weekend, which includes an Irish Catholic ceremony, as well as a traditional Indian ceremony. It will be four days of catching up with friends from college and celebrating the happy couple! I can’t wait to share photos on Monday!

Since I am out of town all weekend, I’m not sure what my plan of attack should be for Sunday’s long run. Option A: Take it easy Saturday night and run Sunday morning before my flight back to DC. Option B: Make full efforts to enjoy Saturday night festivities and run no matter what before the flight. Option C: Run in DC around 7/8pm when I return or Option D: Push it to Monday morning. I’m going to see how the weekend plays out…

Of course, as I write this, it occurs to me that my hotel will have a gym. D’oh! I think that’s actually the simplest way to get some cross training in on Saturday morning and maybe squeeze in my run on Sunday if outside isn’t a possibility. I’ve visited Cincinnati for approximately 30 minutes, 6 years ago and know nothing about where to run downtown. Either way, I plan to do my very best to stay accountable to my plan and enjoy the weekend at the same time 🙂

What are you looking forward to this weekend? How do you juggle training and out-of-town trips? Do you have any weddings to attend this summer?

  1. I love exploring new places on foot, but I would definitely be hesitant if I was just trying to get a long run in. Personally I’d try to run it Saturday morning so I could go all out Saturday night and ride that struggle bus Sunday without my long run looming. Have so much fun and enjoy the festivities!!!


  2. I’d get it out of the way Saturday morning. It’s hard enjoy a party Saturday night when you know you have a long run waiting for you in the am. Takes the fun out a little bit.
