Hope you all had a nice week & are ready for the weekend!!! Here's a bit on how my week went....
Woke up Monday in Chicago & couldn't wait to get back onto the lake front path. They re-did the Fullerton water stop where I got on & it looked great! I took a few of my favorite pics that never get old. It was such a beautiful morning. I ran 2 miles (9:36 & 9:09), walked 1 full mile, ran 1 at 8:46, walked 1 mile. I was really sore / tired after my six hour on Saturday & 1 hour on Sunday, so I wasn't able to do a normal run, but I didn't care!
Then it was meetings all day & off to a work dinner @ MK. We grabbed one drink afterward at Untitled too! Had some great wine, but the newest one I remembered was Dusky Goose! It was delicious and paired great w/ my steak! At the restaurant it was $150, but retails anywhere from $65 to $90. It's an Oregon Pinot Noir. Read more about it here.
I came home & did the below basically all night (side note: Seth & I trade selfies w/ Oliver because we both miss him so much when we're gone (yes we know he is just a puppy =)..) I took the day off from working out.
I was so happy to come home & find out Seth had left me pizza in the fridge. A win with Donato's!
I met up w/ the Brentwood Breakfast Club at 6 am for 4 miles since it is taper week, average of 9:12 pace. After our run, we had breakfast at First Watch & I was so excited they had their Avocado Toast. It is a must try if they have it on the menu!
I got some new TN running shirts at Fleet Feet. I'm not sure how many they will have, so I'd get there sooner rather than later! They have unisex & men's shirts as well.
Lastly, I caught Oliver sleeping while cleaning & packing for my weekend in Cincinnati! This little donut dog warms my heart so much!!!
Anyone racing this weekend? I am doing the Flying Pig in Cincinnati, OH
Where is your favorite place to run?
