Hello from San Jose, CA! I’m here for the US Women’s Gymnastics trials. It’s super exciting and fun!! But first let’s talk about running and eating…
This morning I did another 9 miles in an effort to get some more miles on tired legs. Tomorrow is going to be a very happy rest day.
After my run I got ready and headed to the airport. I just realized it was my first time getting an Uber from home. I usually just use them when I’m traveling! Anyway. I flew from Orange County to San Jose and it was easy breezy. I think the flight was 1 hour.
I have a bunch of small cuts / chafe marks from my sports bra on my chest and under my arms. It’s not a big deal but I noticed a few random looks that reminded me I should cover them up or explain to everyone that I run and sometimes your clothes leave marks on long runs… blah blah blah.
Okay let’s get to San Jose!
It is gorgeous here. GORGEOUS. I’m a big fan of California and every time I see a new awesome place I want to move there forever.
In bee sting news- the sting on my butt got WORSE. It seemed fine yesterday (or maybe I didn’t realize?) but I woke up this morning with a huge welt. Then, I got back from my run and checked it again – it was bigger and redder and disgusting-er. Gross.
I sent a picture to my one friend Katie aka the nurse practitioner and she said to just give all my stuff away and walk toward the light. Fantastic.
But I decided to push through for another night because I didn’t want to miss dinner or the US gymnastics trials.
After dinner and M&Ms the group headed to the SAP center for the trials. We’re here with CorePower (they sponsor one of the star athletes).
