10 mile run this morning! Felt nice out, a little cooler than usual. I woke up early so there were a lot more training groups than usual. Training groups = my nemesis. I hate running with groups, I prefer to run on my own and not have a bunch of people cheering each other on. It sounds pessimistic but I find it to be pretty fake. I ran with charities for 5 years and I have to say I'm happy to run on my own this year. My experiences with the charities were not great. So many people ran for themselves and feel the need to decorate themselves to attract attention. It's pretty terrible but hard to avoid since EVERYONE runs races now. But I can't wait to run alone. It's my therapy.

Candid photo shoot! An acquaintance had her sister in town for her birthday and surprised her with a photo shoot. Fun times walking around Grant Park/Millennium Park!

A beautiful sunrise this morning followed by what looked the apocalypse. But not much happened except for a little rain. And tonight we went to Green Mill to see Margaret Glaspy, ahhhhhh her voice is pretty amazing. And the opener - Bad Bad Hats was great too. You can listen below!!

WGN Morning News!!!!

Soooooo, my friend is a producer at WGN Morning News and asked me to come on to do some comic relief for the Emmy's fashion commentary. I thought I did ok. It was hard without another comedian to bounce off of. But I had a great time and everyone was so friendly. I even saw the Bozo stage! And saw the Morning News team from a distance. Didn't get to meet them but I stared at them for a bit from afar. Good enough for me!

Brunch at Au Cheval!! Well, lunch since we didn't sit down til after 12pm. There was an hour wait so we grabbed a drink at Cruz Blanca first. Both places were amazing except the hostess at Au Cheval, who I sorta wanted to punch in the face. But the burger made me forget all that :)

20 milezzzz

20 MILE RUUUUN. Awwwww shit. I felt pretty great to begin with. I ran the 4 miles north to the end of the lakeshore path. Normally I would stop before turning around but I felt good so I kept going the 4 miles back. Then about 3 more south to Oak St. beach where I stopped for the first time. Went down to Shedd Aquarium and then came back. My back was hurting more than anything else. Like rull bad. It hurt to just walk. So I have to figure this out before the marathon so I don't collapse with an achy back when it's over. Doing some research on that. Stretching and massage seem to be the answer. Count me in! We grabbed drinks at Duke of Perth before a bday party at Parrot's. I only lasted there about an hour before I just wanted to sleep. Another productive Saturday.

Had drinks with an old co-worker and her husband and adorable puppy. He's still pretty hyper like most puppies. So her husband had to take him and leave early. We caught up a bit and have both found way better jobs. FYI - if you see a job postig for a company called Brokers' Risk, RUN....RUN AWAY.

Hump Day

A super fun hangout at work with wine, cheese, and nuts. We went to Pastoral on Lake St. to sample fancy cheeses! It was great chatting with people I haven't really talked to much. I had to jet and visit AJ at work and then went home to relax but decided to go for a run since it's so cool out!

What the what?

This happened on the train today. I soooooo want to know if she was wearing a costume or just regular clothes. I WANNA KNOW!!! (She was reading medical stuff so I'm guessing maybe she works at a children's hospital???)

Another beautiful summer day. The heat is still slightly hanging around but the mornings/evenings are cool. For my runs, this is a nice development :)
