PM - in Chicago for a business conference.  Really warm here - temps in the upper 90's.  Went out after 6 pm for a shake-out and systems check from yesterday's marathon.  All good.

AM - 5 miles on a cooler morning after some rain overnight in Chicago.  Still running slowly in recovery mode.  The blister on the little toe is annoying.  Have to be in San Francisco tomorrow for a business meeting scheduled at the last minute  ... seems to have worked out to be quite a bit of travel in the last week.

Travel day - was up at 3:30 am for a flight to San Francisco midday - and then back on a flight at 5 pm to take me back to ATL - and arrived at home at 1:30 am.  No time for running.

PM - 5 miles on the treadmill at lunchtime.  With limited rest/sleep my run was not so great - as I had expected.

AM - 2.5 miles very easy on a soggy humid former golf course with Finn.  Grass is getting high and buggy.  Finn was antsy to exercise since I was out of town for nearly a week.

PM - a few more in the afternoon.  Blister finally healing.
