I’m back in Baton Rouge for SQL Saturday #28. I was here last year, staying at the beautiful Cook Hotel on the LSU campus. This year I waited too long to book and they filled up, so I’m off campus at a local Marriot.
I’m only about a mile away from University Lake, so I drove over, parked at a local park, laced up the running shoes and took off around the lake.
It felt hot, humid, and familiar. Both as a place I remembered, running by sororities that I had jogged by last year, and as an environment from my youth. Hot, muggy, and soaking me with sweat inside of 5 minutes.
But I enjoyed it, and this was one of the things I looked forward to. Three days of jogging around the lake, taking different routes, and enjoying the hot weather.
