Weekend of June 11-13th
Ok, so I have not had a chance to recap about this past weekend!! I was sooo lucky! I was able to randomly get last Friday off from work which was great cuz one of my friends came over Thursday night with margaritas to relax and watch "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia," Love it!!!
So, we chilled had some drinks, woke up relatively early Friday morning and cleaned the house and packed for Chicago. I had to meet up with my mom, 2 sisters, and family friend to drive up to Chicago in the early afternoon. It was pretty nice cuz my mom drove us so I slept for a good amount of time in the car ride up. We got in kind of late so had some dinner and sat around drinking wine catching up with my friend who we all stayed with. She has a sweet apartment in Lincoln Park/ Rosco area. Her place is super cute!! She's so close to everything too cuz she's on Diversy and only about a mile from the lake.
So, I woke up early (naturally) Saturday morning and used my friends gym in her condo, which was sweet! I ran on the treadmill which I haven't done in like a year, I could run so much faster on the treadmill than I used to be able to! Fun! I only ran about 2 miles cuz my half marathon was the next morning. After a shower and waiting for everyone else to get ready we walked down about 1-2 blocks from the condo to this cafe called "Sweet Bean". I loved it!! Check it out!!
I then headed to Hub 51 with my sister to meet up with some friends and have a drink...
I just hung out with my sister and friends for the rest of the day, and relaxed didn't do much else, went out in the rain at one point, not a good idea... It was impossible to get a taxi that day due to soooooo many festivals! I had to stay in for the night to get enough sleep to get up early for the run!
You probably can't see the salt encrusted on my eye lids! It was a little humid that morning, but a great morning to run. The course was really quite nice, only 2 really large hill. I know I'm cheap I never by prints of my running, I think I look weird...
That was basically my Chicago weekend, it was fun! Sorry, I'm so behind on updating on posts!
