Sponsored: No More Planned Trips; Surprises Only!

Big Dry Creek Trail

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central Consulting for Marriott Rewards. I received Marriott Points to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Guess what? I’m actually in Colorado… for good. My project in Dallas has ended, and now I’ll be working on a project right here in Colorado this fall! I’m kind of in a little bit of shock over this. This week has been pretty surreal. I’ve been working in Dallas for 2.5 years straight, and before this project, I was working on another project that was in …

Getting treated like a health queen

Last night I walked into my room to discover an awesome surprise. My hotel, the Omni, left me a bevy of incredible treats to make me feel like a rockstar! -A yoga mat, towel, and water.-A gym bag filled with more towels, another bottle of water, some 3 pound dumbbells (okay, so those are kind of worthless to super strong me, but it was the thought that counted!), and some resistance bands.-A card from my concierge welcoming me back to the hotel, and listing out the bootcamp class schedule at the nearest gym-A pack of “Hail Merry” spiced vanilla almonds …

Hotel Review: W Washington DC

This week, I changed up my hotel. Thanks to a great rate on Travelzoo, I decided to check out the W Hotel Washington DC – a chic little place one block away from the White House. When I first walked in, it seemed like tourist central! I’m very used to my usual hotel that’s nearly all business travelers, so this was a different scene. Furthermore, instead of a staid lobby with classical Christmas music playing in the background (which is what I’ve become accustomed to), I found that the W was “bumping,” as my friend Kristen would say. Its lobby …

New digs, new gym

First night at my new home (the Westin in DC), and I immediately headed down to the gym to check out the equipment. Not too shabby – there’s a multipurpose weight machine, a pretty extensive set of dumbbells, four treadmills, three ellipticals, two stationary bikes, and a stair stepper. The nice part of all this is it’s spread out in a multi-level room that extends around several corners, so you don’t feel boxed in at all, and there is a separate mirrored room in the back with some mats and exercise balls. And this weird donut ring thing. For size …

Prelude to a Race / Mini-Marriott Review

As I mentioned yesterday, most people seem to plan their races in advance. But yesterday morning, I found myself on the 8:30 flight to Boston, knowing that I was going to do a race, but not sure which. There was a 5K in South Boston sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club. That one started at 10 AM, so the question was if I would make it there in time. There was a “hash” in Cambridge complete with drinking and a St. Patrick’s Day bar crawl, where the question was if I was brave enough to join this group of …
