Last Week

I have been gone for a few days and I apologize for that. Things got crazy quickly around here with the holidays. I mean 7 family Christmas parties plus friends, cooking, and baking, it's nuts but so worth it. Things being crazy means I have not done as well as I had hoped this week in the running world, but that is ok I have payed good attention to the food I have been eating and trying to eat 2 cookies instead of 10 everyday. (Successful 50% of the time) I did however spend this morning reading and catching up on every ones blogs. It sounds like every one is doing great on there training adventures through the holiday season! Congratulations to all of you!

We did do something fun this week though and I think we made a new tradition. We randomly decided on Wednesday night we wanted to go to Chicago! Kyle was craving an Al's Famous Italian Beef sandwich (though Italian beef is what all of my family does for Christmas dinner) and I wanted to go to Ikea to finish Christmas shopping. So we did! Pricelined a hotel which landed us at the hotel Felix right off of Michigan avenue and right down the street from Al's. Perfect! I took my camera and had a field day taking pictures of Chicago at night. I will post a couple though I have not had time to edit them or sort through what is good or bad so forgive me if there are wiggly ones.

If I was having any questions about it being Christmas time Chicago cleared it up for me! Merry Christmas everyone and I'll see you in a few days!



  1. Merry Christmas :) Chicago looks so fun and pretty!! 2 cookies instead of 10 would be a true victory for me. The harder I try, the worse it gets, so I'm forgetting about it for now!!

    1. It seems I am with you on that train. The harder I try the harder I fall...Oh well just means more running. I hope you had a wonderful holiday!
