Hotel gym treadmill again. Decided to knock out this week's 4-mile run while I had the time. Forgot my Garmin, but did 9:1 intervals as I was feeling fresh.

Love mornings with a three hour time difference to my advantage. Got to sleep in, lounge around, watch TV, get coffee and was early to the 8:30 a.m. rehearsals. As anticipated, three of our executives had changes to their presentations this morning, one which had a domino effect on the script. But, got everything taken care of plus knocked out some last minute requests and have some down time this afternoon.

Took a gamble (heh) and didn’t run before heading to Vegas this morning. Had to leave the house at 6:30 am, nope. But luckily I got to the hotel and got to check in around 1:30 pm, so had 2 hours to spare before rehearsals begin.
Staying at the Wynn Tower Suites and it’s kinda fancy! Like Alexa will open the blinds if you ask. And this is the view laying in the bed (cropped out Trump Tower, you’re welcome lol)

Last day in the office for awhile - love that feeling! I'll be working next week, but still, it will be nice to be in another city and at a fun work event. And we get to dress up Tuesday night for an awards ceremony. The theme is Black and Bling, which is fun. I'm wearing a black dress I already have - when I bought it I thought it would be a work dress, but it wears more like a cocktail dress. I tried it on the other day and it's perfect. Going to wear some bling-y accessories and call it good.

Since I won't be in town for the Pride parade Sunday, I'm going to lunch with Jon and Christina tomorrow to celebrate. It will be fun to do something social and in the area the city is setting up for Pride.

Burn update: It's finally starting to harden up and scab a little. An entire week later! Burn cream seems to be helping it move along.

Last Friday, I had a freak curling iron burn on my forearm. One of those situations where I had my arm over my head trying to curl hair on the other side. 350+ degree iron. When it happened, I knew it was kind of bad, but just went about my day. Saturday after my run, the top layer bubbled up and came off - and it was clearly not ready for that to happen. I'd been alternating Neosporin, covering it, letting it breathe, etc. but it just looked so bad! People at work were asking if I went to the hospital. Amy was very worried about it as one of her daughters got staph infection twice from an open wound. Anyway, I went to Target last night to get some gauze and the pharmacist urged me to go to a Minute Clinic to get some prescription burn cream. So I spent a few hours doing that, and glad I did. The doctor there prescribed me this strong cream and said I need to wash with "wound wash," apply the cream twice a day, apply a gauze pad and completely wrap my forearm for the next 10+ days. And to watch for signs of infection of course. But jeeze I have to dress my wound for the next 10-14 days, that will be fun in Las Vegas!

Officially on a half marathon training plan for the Thanksgiving Day race, but I've gotta get back to running over lunch. Too hectic to fight traffic, get home, walk Ellie Mae, feed Ellie Mae, then suit up for a run before the sun goes down. Lovely evening tonight.

Booked my London hotel finally - decided to stay in Soho. Also planning something to do each day, but don't want every minute scheduled. For anyone who has been to London, how does this look?

Day 1 - Flight arrives in the morning, find hotel, nap, then an evening Soho food tour
Day 2 - Combo tour (morning): Tower of London, river boat ride, Buckingham Palace with Changing of the Guard, rest of the day free
Day 3 - London Eye and Sky Garden (no set times)
Day 4 - Westminster Abbey (no set time)
Day 5 - Flight departs 9 a.m.

Other things I'd like to do in the not-scheduled time are just walking around some of the famous streets and parks, eating fish and chips in a pub, shopping... I might catch a local play. Definitely not a museum person.
