Yesterday was one of those days.
You know, the kind where you just have to curl up with a big cup of hot tea at the end of the day.
Okay, so actually that’s how I end every single night, but last night was a two cup of tea night.
Is it the weekend yet?
The one shining bit of awesomeness that came out of yesterday was that I *officially* joined Team Paws which means I am 120% running the Chicago Marathon this October!
I’m really excited to support a cause that I am passionate about, and to combine that with running which I am equally as passionate about!
^ That -70% change is pretty powerful!
Once I set up my fundraising page I’ll pop a link in the sidebar of the blog in case you should want to donate.
Now that I’ve officially joined the team I am ready to begin training right away! Why does the race have to be 10 months away?!
When I told Adam that it was official his immediate response was, “that’s great, I can’t wait to eat deep dish pizza!” Haha, me too!
I’ve only been to Chicago once and I didn’t get to see any of the city. I was there for a work related conference and I never left the hotel except to go to and from the airport.
This time I won’t make the same rookie marathon mistake of flying out the same day as I finish the marathon. Instead we’ll make a full trip out of Chicago and stick around for a bit of relaxation after the race!

In calf related news, I can barely feel the uncomfortableness when I walk or stand on my tippy…. but in the middle of the night I woke up with the WORST. CRAMP. EVER. I wanted to rip my calf off and throw it out the window! Not cool! Once the cramp went away it felt okay though. Weird!
I can’t wait to start running again. I know it’s so cliche to say that when you’re taking a break from running but I really miss it! Just a couple more days to go!
Any big plans for the weekend? Are you racing?
Best places to visit / hotels to stay at in Chicago??
– I want to book early!
