My eyes snapped open at 4 AM. I think my body is a little confused about the time change (California is three hours behind). I forced myself to go back to sleep until 5:30, and then I woke up to get some exercise in.
But when I walked over to the hotel gym, it was all full. There’s only 2 treadmills and 1 elliptical. I contemplating doing an in-room aerobic routine, but I decided I’d rather brave the cold weather. It’s 52 degrees in Fresno!
I layered. :) I ended up wearing the shorts + tank I ran in yesterday, plus yoga pants and another running top. My arms were FREEZING, but my legs and chest were fine.
I ran along a main commercial drag. Lots of car dealerships and McDonald’s, so although there weren’t a lot of people walking around, there was traffic and lighting. I felt safe. It was just a boring run, visually.
Here are my statistics:
- Duration: 29:07
- Distance: 3.0 miles
- Mile 1: 9:37
- Mile 2: 9:47
- Mile 3: 9:42
I met Tina for breakfast in the lobby:
The hotel food was excellent. I love breakfast buffets! There was real Quaker oatmeal with a variety of fun toppings:
I had eggs, fruit, and oatmeal with cranberries and brown sugar:
Watching Tina use her sweet SLR camera (and comparing my dinner photographs to her dinner photographs) has really solidified the fact that I need an SLR camera in addition to a point-and-shoot. The quality is so much better. I hope I can get one before our trip to England! If anyone would make good use out of such an expensive camera, it’s a food blogger, right?
Well, if I don’t hurry up, I’m going to be the last person ready, so I’d better get a move on. Today we’re going to the POM Wonderful orchards. I’m really excited – I love agriculture.
See you soon!
What kind of camera do you have? My point-and-shoot is a Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS. For a little camera, it takes excellent non-flash photographs, which I think is key for food photographs.
