....and we ran.

I used to love to run. This was a long time ago.
Then the whole running trend began and everyone and their grandmother (literally!) started running races.
Every person I know was running, has ran, or will be running a 5K, 10K, 7billionK.
I wasn't about to join in...or so I thought.

One day I received a confirmation email.
Thanks to my sister in love (pictured far left), I was signed up for the Glo-Run in Chicago.
Yep, without my permission she signed me up....and let me tell you, it was SO much fun. :)

Of course I came in first place. *cough* Can't wait to do it again next year.

The Crown Fountains...always fun to watch,
but it drives me crazy that the lips are never lined up with the water coming out of them.

...and today was spent at the zoo. Visiting animals...riding the carousel.
Sunny and 70 degrees...it was a perfect day.

Tomorrow morning we do our first Farmer's Market of the season.
My first 3:30am wake-up and I can't fall asleep! I am going to be so tired tomorrow.

Off to count sheep.

  2. you're right- "everyone" is running these days- even me :) although when i started, i didn't know that SO many people were doing it! i am not good, but it does make me feel good, so i guess i will at least reach my goal this year of running in a 5k- and then if i still want to, i can quit!

  3. this looks so fun!! you totally seem like you would be a natural runner, those long legs and all.

  4. You're just copying me. Admit it.

  5. I used to love to run too... before I had three kids and the time to do it is nearly nil! :) and yeah, back before it was so popular. Ha! That makes us sound old!! That glow run sounds so fun! Way to go for your sister-in-love to just sign you up! Ha ha!

  6. I saw your comment, we totally live less than a 1/2 block from eth Farmer's Market in A ville!!! I was there today! What booth are you at? I will totally come visit you next week!!!!

  7. Wow, I'm impressed! Good job on your first place finish *cough*!
    I was wondering when the Farmer's market would start up again. Praying you have a wonderful season!
    What's with those lips? LOL
