Many friends keep telling me not to rush to SF...to smell the roses along the way. I guess they know I can be goal orientated to a fault, and might might end up exhausting myself if the only trip objective is to complete it. Charlottesville seemed like a great place to take their sage advice to heart. Lovely town and home of UVA, Thomas Jefferson's university. I managed to find a balance between alleviating my anxiety about making a dent in the work, emails, etc that were piling up all week, and enjoying the town. I strolled The Lawn, then did a typical work thing: went to a coffee shop and fired up my laptop. Had an enjoyable lunch at the 12th St Tap House. Was happy to meet two good dudes, John - who recently moved to C'ville w/ his wife, and Emmanuel, a triathlete and excellent bartender. Also took my bike to the shop to tweak the skipping chain, get a new rear tire, etc. Ended the day at a crummy Mexican restaurant that morphed into a karaoke bar before I called it a night.
