Adventures in Chicagoland
Yesterday was the Father in-laws birthday so to celebrate I special ordered snow and went for a run in it. Okay the run was for me. I planned to go for six miles and went 4.7 after I realized it was cold and wet and I was tired from too much eating and wandering around Chicago on Thursday.
Really it was snowing harder than it looks in this picture. I swear.
We all went out to dinner at the Shanty. This restaurant has been on diners, drive-in and dives. Check it out here. I had the whiskey shrimp they made on the show. So good. Of course anything with that amount of butter is going to be delicious.
It looks just like this only think dark, cold and snowy.
I also baked a funfetti cake to celebrate because we just did not have enough food in the house. Hey it is a birthday and it must be celebrated.
Today is a rest day = sit on couch wearing owl hat and watching movies.
Tomorrow is a long run day. I think I will go for seven or eight if the weather is not too bad, or I guess I could run on the treadmill. Inside or out, a long run needs to happen. Happy weekend!
