Back to Santa Rosa

I'm back in Santa Rosa for work for 2 weeks. Since I was here Sunday night-Thursday morning nearly every week last year, it really is kinda like coming home. The front desk clerk last night was like "hey, long time no see," when I came in last night, and the waitress at breakfast remembered my breakfast order (oatmeal with cinnamon and brown sugar, coffee, and fruit).

This morning I had my best run in quite awhile. I needed it after many days of workouts where my legs felt like lead. I ran along the Brush Creek trail and it was a nice sunny morning. I had just planned to do an easy hour, but I felt so good I turned it into an interval workout. 30 seconds hard with 30 seconds of recovery X 4, then 2 minutes normal pace, repeat 8 (I think 8, but I honestly lost track).

Since I'm going to be working a zillion hours the rest of the week and stuck eating hospital food, I tried to pack in some of my favorite eats today. For lunch, I wanted to go to Betty's Fish and Chips, this cute and tiny little place right by my hotel.
