April 1st is here! The Chicago Cubs season kicks into gear today and March is in books! It also means that race week is here! I’m running my first 1/2 marathon of the season on Saturday and after my exhilarating 12 miler this past weekend I am ready!
Debbie over at Healthy Running Mom and I are headed down to Springfield, IL after work on Friday to run the Lincoln Presidential 1/2 Marathon! This is the first time I have traveled beyond the city of Chicago for a race! I’m so excited! I’ll be watching the weather like a crazy lady all week in hopes for a repeat performance of the temps we had here this weekend.
The Hubs and I saw the movie Olympus has Fallen! For all you 24 fans out there, I highly recommend it! I’m a huge Morgan Freeman fan too! Shawshank Redemption is my absolute favorite movie and it never gets old!
We tried a fun new restaurant that we were a little skeptical about when we realized it was in a strip mall, but we do live in suburbia now! We both had great dinners and had no problem finishing up this bottle of wine!
The Hubs heads back to work and I get a few more days off! Today I’m planning on going to Bikram then I’m going to get fitted for new gym shoes! I was fitted in 2006 when I was training for my first marathon and have been living in my Adidas Supernova shoes since then. I’m not disappointed with the shoes but my speed has changed and I’m guessing how I run has also changed so I’m going to get fitted by the pro’s at Road Runner Sports! I’ll let you know what happens.
