I’m home! This meeting gave me even less free time than the last one. I flew to St. Louis on Tuesday and got home Friday. My only real time outside and to myself was on my early morning runs. Like I said before, getting my workouts in on work trips is really important to me. I need that time for fresh air and mind clearing. And of course, calorie burning because my work meetings always over do it on the food.
The hotel wasn’t really that nice, but it was close to the arch. So my coworker/running buddy Adrienne and myself ran to the arch Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Apparently we ran over a bridge that took us into Illinois, but we didn’t know that at the time. So I ran in 3 states this week! Georgia, Missouri, and Illinois. Each day was a 4 mile run and we changed up the route each day. Here are a few pics and the views #seenonmyrun.
Our morning running adventures really helped out on our team building event on Thursday night. We had a scavenger hunt that ended at the Cardinals stadium. We had 45 minutes to run around the downtown area and get as many items on a list that we could. We luckily had seen many of the landmarks and restaurants that were needed for the clues.
Our team kicked some A and we found out on Friday at the closing session that we won! $100 and an autographed book (explain more in a later post). A really, really fun event. Two team building events in a row and my team dominates. I love it.
We got to spend the evening on the field. We had dinner, a tour, and met Fredbird. Really, one of the coolest experiences I’ve had at my job (not a whole lot of excitement in pharm sales).
As you can see, a pretty good trip. ESPECIALLY for work. It actually has me leaning towards the Rock n Roll St. Louis 1/2 marathon now. I wasn’t sure if I would like the city, but it seems there is much more to see. Unless yall have a better suggestion for a Missouri race…
Have you been to St. Louis? Where would you suggest I run for my Missouri race? Does your job have team building events?
