Fresh out of Term 1 Fuqua MBA residency, I headed to Charlotte for some face time in the Digital headquarters at Bank of America. In the meantime, I ran 26 miles in two days there, which almost hit the same mileage I had run the week before at Duke. Meagan was in town for the weekend, so it helped tremendously to just have her around to step out the door and get running.

I spent the majority of this week in my hometown of Carbondale, Illinois for my parents' 40th anniversary and my HS hall of fame induction. I was especially humbled to be inducted into my high school hall of fame because I was the youngest by 14 years compared to any other inductee. It was tough to get motivated to run because it was so hot when I was Illinois, but I was happy with my weekly mileage here.
