We got into Austin, TX around midnight last night. Or later. Or maybe earlier. Or maybe I was drunk. (Kidding! Not drunk! Yet!) The hotel is nice, but I got up at 5am to run and the treadmills are not nice. I didn’t even make it half-of-a-mile. They are rickety and scary and I think I may need to find a running alternative here. Since the hotel is practically ON the exit ramp, I doubt I’ll find a place to run here – but we’ll see. The door to my room walks out into the food area (perfect) and is about 10 feet from the diet coke machine (even better).
I’m trying my best not to think about missing my family. Although I miss them terribly already. I need my morning kisses from NikkiZ to start the day. I decided to substitute those with crappy room coffee, but it’s just too crappy. The big breakfast starts in a few minutes, so I’m going to head out to get some caffeine and then come back to get back to work. (Fun!)
I brought my camera(s) and am going to be taking loads of pictures while I’m here. I’m also hoping to update regularly to let you know how things go. I’m hoping to hook up with Amy and her partner panelists in crime at some point this evening.
Off to SXSW!
