I flew into Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) picked up my rental car and drove east to Millville, New Jersey. My hotel, the Fairfield Inn and Suites was located just off New Jersey Route 55. I would be working near the Atlantic City International Airport which was about a 50 minute drive from my hotel.

My only outside run was on Monday. I exited the hotel parking lot on a nice wide road with few vehicles.

On my final evening in New Jersey me and three (3) of my coworkers met for dinner at Jo Jo's Italian Grille near Hamilton Mall in Pleasantville, NJ. I had the lasagna. I couldn't eat it all, nor did I try. The food was good but oddly enough they don't serve alcohol. You can Bring Your Own Bottle (BYOB) but...

I finished the week with just over 20 miles run - 14 miles on the street and 6 miles on the hotel treadmill. My end of trip weight was +2 lbs. I don't know how this is possible since I ate salads for lunch all week. BIG salads I know but salads just the same.
