Government Waste

When is a Presidential Suite not a Presidential Suite? When it’s a free upgrade (good), in a Hilton Garden Inn (not so good). Nevertheless, I have more space than I need, a monster 50-inch TV, two AC/heater systems, an ice maker with enough ice for the entire floor, and the pièce de résistance … complimentary Runner’s World magazine sitting on the coffee table. Huh?

Um, sorry folks, I’m a little light on running news.

Without a race goal in mind, and freezing temps in Dallas, I managed only one 6-mile run last weekend. Tomorrow, I have to run, or I’ll go out of my mind. Just have to do it. I’m in Arlington, VA. I’m going to see the sun rise over the Potomac tomorrow.

You're in d.c. more than I am! I love running along the potomac before daybreak. and very thoughtful of the hilton: your reputation obviously precedes you!

post this on sunday 2-4-06: i hope you got your run done rich. it's been cold (for texas) but not much wind. once you get going, it's great. does being in the presidential suite make your pinkie raise when you sip coffee there?

No gym inside the room? What a shame!
