Instead of more carefully planning for my work trip, I was taking care of bike business:
1. Patched a hole in little guy's front bike tube.
2. Installed a blue bike bell on his bike.
3. Got a new bell for me (I heart Seattle, most of the time).
4. Added a new reflective item to my bicycling ensemble.
Upon arrival in Alaska, I met up with my client whom I had never met in person and we drove around looking at work-related "stuff." After dinner, in a moment of weakness, I mentioned that I had a running mom blog. This is NOT something I would mention to any client under normal circumstances. But, it turns out that she (client who lives in the middle of the country, many states removed from WA) has a friend named Sybil in Seattle who also has a running mom blog. Yup, none other than Sybil Runs Things was our 1 degree of separation.
What are the odds?
I'm exhausted and we have a big day ahead. My goal is to get up and go for a run to explore the town and gorgeous views. In the meantime, here are some shots from the flight over:
|Those are mountains out there, not clouds!|
Oh, and the sore ham/glute from Thursday's near-fall is almost back to normal! Phew!
