Late night last night. Went to dinner with a lab from Japan and it was fun traversing the language barrier. Didn't get in until almost 1am then up at 6:30am for a run before a full day of meeting. This time I ran the other direction and it totally made the difference. It was very scenic much cleaner and a ton of fun. Except when I fell :(... I was going around a garbage can and there was a bed frame that clipped my toe. I mostly just hurt my pride but it had to have been a good spill, I was going about 7:00 pace at the time and two cars stopped to ask me if I was ok. Luckily there was a gas station there for me to wash out the wounds and get some bandaids. My right arm took most of it and my knees were protected so it was good. Made it to the zoo from the convention center and there is a really nice park there. Lots of squirrels and parrots around. Also, at my turn around I stopped to watch some of the water fowel along the shore. The meeting is now over for me. Today was useful, a number of interesting talks and one very good networking conversation with the person who discovered one of the proteins I study. Avg. 7:20 HR 154

Sounds like a fun trip so far. But watch out for angry bed frames...
