Last weekend I went shopping and picked up a little something for Cecil: his own haunted house! At first he was a scaredy cat and wouldn’t go in but eventually he warmed up to it.
I can’t believe he’s all grown up and has his own place now!
I also bought Cecil this brown cube called a Curious Cat Cube. I thought he would love the small cozy space, but he refuses to go inside or even lay on top of it unless I give him treats near it. I guess he prefers the Haunted House aka a decorated cardboard box. He’s such a cat sometimes 😉 .
I also bought myself a little something: new nail polish. I love the gold flecks against the navy blue. It reminds me of winter which is almost upon us. Yesterday morning it was 80 degrees when I left the house and I had to put on a jacket. Don’t laugh, just pass the hot chocolate.
Speaking of weather every single day I log on to weather.com to see what it’s like in Chicago. Does anyone know if these are unusually warm temperatures for late Sept/early October in Chicago or if they are pretty normal? It’s looking just a tad warmer than I would like to see, but at least it doesn’t look like it’s going to be in the 80s on race day (fingers crossed).
I’m really excited to spend a few days in Chicago. I don’t know how much sightseeing I’m actually going to be able to do outside of the race, but I hope to visit the bean and a few other key landmarks.
I think I’ve officially hit the point in training where I am more excited than nervous about this race. Now there is nothing left to do but sit back and trust in my training. Okay, well “sit back” is probably not the right phrase since this week of the taper is still pretty intense.
Have I mentioned how my legs have felt like bricks since Saturday? They feel tired, heavy and sore but not painful or anything. They just feel like I almost ran a marathon!
Only 17 days until Chicago!
Recommendations for any place I should visit/eat at/see while I’m in Chicago?
Is the public transporation pretty good
