In preparation for all the running around I know I will do in the next four days, I decided to run in the American Association for Cancer Research Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon on Saturday. The race was awesome, with beautiful crisp Fall weather, live music every few miles, Philly architecture and the Schuylkill river to please the eyes, and the Gin Blossoms playing at the end.
While this is one way to prepare for all the treks between talks, it also pays to plan ahead. If you haven’t already, take the time to pick out the talks, panel discussions, networking events, etc. that interest you most and optimize your way to a great conference.
