The People are Back

We ran along the lake front path this morning as we always do and to our delight the path was packed full of runners and bikers and roller bladers and dogs and walkers and kids. I love when the weather starts to take a turn for the best and Chicagoans all seep out of their apartments which they have been holed up in for the past 4 months. It's way fun to run when this happens because there is so much more to look at than snow and ice and one or two other lonely runners out on the path. We ran 9.2 miles and had a great time. We started S-L-O-W and maybe picked up the pace after about 3 miles or so. We didn't pick up the pace much, but got into a rhythm that we felt really comfortable in. I had a bit of leg pain, but nothing debilitating and was able to easily get through the run.....however.

I WAS STARVING!!!

I got up at 7:30 this morning and had a bagel with peanut butter and we went out to run around 11 or so. By the time the run was over my stomach was yelling at me for being so stupid and so I need to remember to eat closer to when we leave for the run.

Here are the weekly progress reports. Also I did get t-shirts made and would highly recommed zazzle.com if you are interested in ever making anything (they do shirts and posters and even stamps I think) They had super speedy delivery and the shirt looks exactly as it did online.

We'll be racing next weekend so we are looking forward to that (although a tad bit nervous!)
