This morning we had our longest run yet in our CARA marathon training program. 9 of the hottest and sweatiest miles – in the book. It was 78 degrees with 88% humidity at 6 am when we started running. Oh Chicago you and your bipolar weather need to get it together.
Last night we carbo loaded for today’s run by going to dinner at Pizano’s Pizza.
Pizano’s is one of the stops we checked out on the food tour and I really enjoyed it that day. Last night was a slightly different story. We started off with a Sam Summer because it just felt right.
The food itself was good. Pizano’s deep dish doesn’t have 3 lbs of cheese like other Chicago establishments so it’s good for not feeling ill after you eat.
That was the least of it, but I’m in the middle of eating a snack and I don’t want to ruin my appetite by recalling the other incidents that occurred. Take my word for it when i say –NASTY. We walked home from dinner and I enjoyed a coconut water and some episodes of the Soprano’s before bed.
We stopped for water at almost every water fountain as the humidity was sucking the life out of everyone. Apparently someone in our group actually passed out but I missed it. Scary. Eventually we made it back to the city as a herd of sweaty runners.
Once home I ate half of a chocolate power bar and headed directly to the 13th floor.
Happy and safe weekend whatever you may be doing.
