Oh what a perfect day it is here in Chicago. We’ve enjoyed the heck out of the day so far starting with our CARA marathon training run. Let me back up a minute.
Last night we did super grown up things for a Friday night and ran some errands. We’re attempting to redecorate our apartment but have no idea where to start so we headed to a shopping center to look around and get something to eat.
I had a big pile mac n’ cheese, tofu, mashed potatoes, broccoli, beans, beets, and curried something. Pretty delicious. After we ate we headed over to heaven World Market. We have our eye on some pretty nice pieces of furniture but didn’t buy anything last night as we ran out of time and had to head to the movie theater for our 7 PM show.
We saw Bridesmaids and I’ve never laughed harder than at the part where she’s trying to get the cop’s attention. I was crying. Go see it if you haven’t, but I know we’re late to the game. This movie theater on Roosevelt is pretty sweet. They have VIP theaters where you sit on couches and drink adult beverages but Bridesmaids wasn’t playing in any of those. The theater also has sweet views of the city.
A step back week helps you to prepare your body for gradual mileage increases along the training plan. This gives you a little bit of a break and lets your muscles recover. Today we happened to run the exact same route as Sara and I did the other miserable night.
We headed south on the path towards the museums.
The 5 miles flew by and we were soon back for snack time.
We stretched for a bit and then headed home. I didn’t get the memo about the red shirts. RUDE.
We’ve got some fun stuff on the docket for today. I’ll give you a hint, rhymes with “Waste of Embargo”. Kind of. You try rhyming something with Chicago. I hope you have wonderful and relaxing Caturday like these 2 bums!
P.S. Go check out Ralph’s haircut.. it’s amazing! I’m thinking it could be a light, summery cut for Waffles. Thoughts?
