HLS 2012: Sunday Run and Boston Fun


Good morning! I am back home and oh it feels so good. Unfortunately, I seem to have taken home a little souvenir, a cold and runny nose. Boo! Either way, still good to be home and sleep in my own bed.

I Made It!

I am going to be skipping around a bit because well, I can, and because I want to go more in depth with the post for the Saturday sessions and with my cold I am not thinking straight and the post will be poorly written. So, I am going to jump to something a lot less thought provoking, all the fun we had on Sunday!

I was up at 7:00 for the 5k fun run. We all met in the lobby at 8:00, and most people seemed very sleepy from all the fun from the day before.

The whole group ready to go (oh my the poor man who took the picture….took him five minutes!

We headed out onto the street and to the river where some ran, some walked.


We crossed over the bridge into Boston. (By the way, the weather was so awesome and cool!)




Sweat Pink!


After our run, we had a farewell brunch which was absolutely delicious, and then I headed out to meet my boss at the travel agency I work for. She came in on the train and met me at Harvard square and we took the train to downtown Boston.


I found it so fascinating since I grew up in below-sea-level New Orleans where we have no underground anything.



We wandered around ate lunch, and did a lot of chatting.



We had a good time catching up, but before I knew it it was getting late and we took the train back so I could catch the hotel shuttle back to the Hyatt. It was so great to see her but I felt like a bump on a log because I was so tired from the summit!

I did some relaxing and hanging at the hotel before bedtime and heading home Monday morning! My next update will backtrack to Saturday!

    Boston looks super beautiful and I’m glad you had a good run and a good time catching up with your boss (yeah, I work from home and I “hang out” with mine too when I see her!). I love your running skirt too, it’s super cute and preppy looking.

    Boston is such a beautiful city. Here are some pictures I took there about two years ago. http://www.flickr.com/photos/uziel5000/sets/72157625617358374/

    I’m a little jealous of your cooler weather run, but I do hope you feel better soon. Summit looks really awesome; I’m thinking it would be nice to go next year… If I can work on traveling by myself.

    So jealous of the HLS people! Lol – I’ll get there one day :-).

    It looks like you had an incredible time. And kind of cool that you were able to mix in a bit of work at the end.

    These pictures made me smile. I lived in Boston for 2 years (in an apartment very similar in appearance and probably very near the ones you pictured above with the red brick). The back of our building actually overlooked the Charles and we could see the Hyatt from there. I loved it other than the crazy expensive everything!!

    Hope you had an amazing visit!

    Lovely pictures! It seems you had a fabulous time with the entire group. Running is fun in group especially in cool weather.
