The cat is unsettled by the wet stuff on the ground. He keeps looking at me as if I can turn it off.
Dreamforce is like an endurance race. And the recovery process is similar. Feet up. Lots of sleep. Hydrate. Zone out.
I’m on my 4th day of recovery and feeling a bit like my usual self again. It’s nice. I missed me.
Dreamforce was a smashing success on all fronts. Happy customers. Pleased bosses. Team worked well together and managed the stress. All good.
Speaking of the team – here are a few of them…
Here’s a bit of the event – really too massive to capture
Pic from my late night Muni ride home.
As I predicted (because it was predictable, not because I’m smart) work has consumed every waking hour this week.
Also as predicted I’m getting less sleep, eating more sugar and not moving my body around at all.
Guess which part of my body is rebelling? My eyes. They sting and burn and have become unhappy with looking at a computer screen.
Sorry for a post filled with whining. This too shall pass.
My friend Harriet Anderson did it again! She finished the Ironman championship race in Kona in October. And by finishing within the 17 hour limit she won her division (women 75-79 years old). Again.
I met Harriet for coffee this morning and she brought some photos from the race. She regaled me with stories that made me think doing an Ironman could be fun. Her enthusiasm for the sport is that contagious
The photo above is Harriet with Mirinda Carfae, the overall women winner of the race. I love this pic!
This Saturday Nov 16 at 1:30 p.m. PT On NBC you can probably see Harriet in the race coverage called “Ironman Triathlon: From Hawaii.”
Did a 4 mile run in my fave forest today. This place has the magical quality of making me happy no matter my mood at the start of a run.
I’m pleased to report that I clocked my fastest mile segment ever during this run. Sure a bunch of it was downhill but I’ll take it!
I get to see my mom tomorrow!
Only 8 business days left before the magic of Dreamforce unfolds. Pretty much everyone in the company is feeling the pressure which means stress all around. Totally normal and expected but still challenging.
So I’m doing what I can to remain healthy and sane. My plan includes drinking lots of water, getting sleep, exercising and avoiding sugar.
I’m succeeding with the first two – not so much with three and four.
However! I did get out for my favorite forest run on Saturday…
In other news, my Mom is a total rockstar! She’s recovering really well from her knee replacement! So proud of her.
Now Voyager has a bad cold right now. I would take a pic of his snotty nose but it looks pretty gross
And my friend Harriet Anderson won her division (75-79 year olds) AGAIN at the Ironman world championship in Kona. I get to see her next week to hear all about her adventure!
That’s all for now…
