Itzy on the Road- Jacksonville, FL

Hey guys! Quick little note post here. I made it to Jacksonville safely! It was a very peaceful and beautiful drive (I love the south!).

I arrived at my hotel and....well, it was a dump. There were pieces of old food on the floor, the bathroom floor was completely sticky, the tub was yellow. It was cheap...I should have known! I was going to deal with it until I folded down the covers and saw blood on one of the pillows!!!! I called the front desk and said I was out of there and was not paying. The guy at the desk didn't even put up a fight (must happen often).

I am now happily at a clean, safe hotel! Body attack training starts early tomorrow morning - I better get to sleep! Hopefully a more exciting post tomorrow
