4 Mile Recovery

OOOOOHHH I love the word recovery. Nice.

Jason and I had a wonderful run this afternoon. I had to go into the lab for a meeting this morning and came back around 12:45 or so. We went out sans watch or any real kind of plan and just went slow and steady and comfortable. We ended up running by the baseball diamonds that are near the totem pole and the fields were PACKED with people playing slow pitch Chicago style softball (Chicago style=big 16" squishy softballs). Everyone had coolers and picnic stuff and kids were running/roller blading/biking around. It was just a great day in the city of Chicago.

We made our way back home and now poor Jason has to head to the lab for his shift from 4-midnight. Poor guy on such a beautiful day. I am swamped with work, so I am going to go get some lunch and enjoy the day and then back home to work. Hopefully the list of things I have to do will go fast and then I can relax the rest of the evening.

Life is great in Chicago in the summer - isn't it? Don't work to hard.

I love the area around the totem pole...always fun to see everyone out enjoying the day.

Hopefully you had a chance to relax and enjoy yourself...

Glad to hear you've recovered from your hangover. Don't feel bad about drinking a bit too much once in a while. We all have to let our hair down now.

'Squishy'? Maybe by the 3rd or 4th inning. I've had a few jammed fingers and thumbs (we don't use a glove non-Chicagoans) from those rocks over the years.

But of course the coolers that you mentioned usually provided just the right medication that eased the pain. Chicago Rocks!!! Let the festivals begin!!!
