Day 1- Alone (and a bucket list check off)

*Full disclosure- I presented at 7:30AM on Day 1 with Mark French (Minnesota) and Ryan Sheehy (California) and needed to clear my head as presenting at a national conference is also a bucket list item. Check.
Day 2- Old friends and new friends
|Ben, me, Eric, and JR|
Day 3- Sharing your learning
|Joe, Laura, and me|
This post was not meant to suggest that you run every morning at conferences that you attend. It was meant to demonstrate a few of the ways that one can participate in a conference. The total time of the three runs was less than 2 hours, but the conversations (I do talk to myself when I run alone) kept pushing my thinking. I encourage you to have your future conference experiences be more like my Day 2 and 3 runs. You'll get so much more out of your learning.
