Didn’t feel like driving over an hour to the Tri club ride at Silk Sheets. Would have likely taken 2 hours to drive home. So I headed to Silver Comet Trail solo and had a great ride. Had to get off the bike 3 miles from the end as my hot foot was getting unbearable. Saw an armadillo, random!

Found out yesterday that my former boss from my old company passed away. I knew he had been battling brain cancer, but it's never easy to hear news like that. My Dad knew him, too, and he reminded me of my Dad in some ways.

BUUUUUUUt in better news, we are celebrating Christina's bday tomorrow night with Mexican food and a drag show in Midtown. I'm SO looking forward to this! 

I will swim tonight. I will swim tonight. I will swim tonight.

Early evening with Ellie Mae

Haven't worked from home in so long, so doing it today is much appreciated. Yesterday our parent company announced a pilot for Atlanta employees for "flex work" - meaning if your manager approves, you can flex your work schedule and location in a number of ways (telework multiple days a week, 4/10s, shift your start/start times each day, etc.). I'm trying to find a balance of supporting the trial and knowing that our department leaders aren't as supportive as their words suggest. Our VP is a little old school and makes comments when people aren't in the office by 9 a.m. (even though they may have made other arrangements) - that kind of thing. And my direct manager is trying so hard to fight her old school mentality - she also is supportive in her words, but it's 100% obvious that it makes her wildly uncomfortable. I can't wait until teleworking is the norm instead of the exception!

My proposal to my boss is to work from home on Thursdays, but use common sense to come in to the office if I have face-to-face meetings I need to show up for. If I can do this consistently, it will save me an hour of driving every week!

Kinda late run. Had a work meeting run past 5 p.m. so got home a little late. Then chatted with my sister hatching a plan to run the Tallahassee marathon together in February! HASHTAG TALLY2020! I'm pretty excited about (potentially) running another marathon with my sister!
Anyway, this run was nice - temps have dropped so it was 83 degrees. Still warm and super sweaty, but a nice change from head indexes in the mid-90s. Also totally randomly do any of you remember MilaMinute from here on BT? She doesn't post anymore, but we've remained connected on Facebook and she lives in Roswell near me. I saw her and her kids SUPing and kayaking on the Chattahoochee River! I was up above on a bridge crossing the river so didn't want to scare them, but I confirmed it was her on FB when I got home. How fun! And it makes me want to get a kayak or SUP!

Lunch run in the work gym. Snagged the very last treadmill at noon. Lots of hot air being huffed and puffed around me. Then my ear buds randomly died (at full charge!) and I had to listen to the gal next to me almost whimper as she ran. I can't wait for my new iPhone renewal in September so I can finally use plugged in headphones again. My current phone's headphone jack hasn't worked for almost a year, and I refuse to spend $200 on airpods. I bought a $50 pair and they are wildly hit and miss if they work or not.
