I was in LA this past weekend, hanging out with a bunch of my b-school friends. More about the weekend in another post.
SFO – LAX – SFO
I’m now in Minneapolis for the week. Prone to motion sickness, I have trouble being productive on flights. So I slept the whole way. Compounded with the time difference, it’s past midnight here and I’m wide awake. The post-Ambien, ten hour sleep kind of awake. Yahoowie!
SFO – MSP
Here in Minne, I stay at the Grand Hotel. I love it. I’m not exaggerating. I actually get excited when my manager tells me I need to book a flight to come out. Built around a famous, historical athletic club, this hotel is THE hotel for those who like to sweat. The treadmills are to-die-for. Top of the line. I feel like I’m bouncing rather than running. The marble-covered steam room is hot and minty–a perfect wind-down after a long, strenuous run. The rooms and amenities are great, too, but the gym and all the classes keep me coming back with a smile. My camera is here with me. I’ll have to take some pictures and post them when I get back home.
Oh, there’s also a sushi restaurant in the hotel, plus complementary tea that comes to my door in the morning. And the hearty oatmeal for breakfast is divine. I love coming to Minneapolis! It’s like being on work vacation.
