All the controls are on at work now so I can't read blogs anymore. Sad panda. Well I can on my phone but I have to have a lot of extra time to do that.
Last weekend I went to Chicago! To cheer my friend on while she ran the Chicago Marathon. I had scheduled my flight super early so that I would get to the airport at the same time as my friend but then she changed plans and was already in Chicago. Oh well! I know what the freeway is like at 4am now. Good thing Scott is a morning person. Sunrise on an airplane!
I took Lyft for the first time from the airport to the hotel. The woman who was directing the cars at the airport is going to be lucky if she doesn't keel over from a heart attack. Jesus. Relax lady! I don't even know why they even needed anyone out there. People can figure out how to pull over on their own. So the guy picks me up and then we get like 4 big blocks away (or more) and then he gets a call for a 2nd rider back at the airport (I'm cheap so had done the share a ride option). I thought that was rather rude that we'd circle back around but what do I know. It took almost an hour to get from the airport to the hotel.
I was starving by the time I got there so we walked down to Yolk and had lunch. I had this yummy fritatta thing. It was so freaking loud in the restaurant though so it was a bit hard to hear.
After breakfast we went back to the hotel and then a couple hours later we went to another restaurant to meet up with some people from the Fat to Finish Line Facebook group that my friend is on. I didn't know anyone but I had a great time talking to a gal that is a Navy mom with 3 boys that are close in age to my 3 kids. This poster was in the bathroom. I might need one!
After "dinner" (I just had drinks and a little slider tray) we went back to the hotel and chatted a bit. I feel asleep super early which was probably a good thing since Sarah had to get up at 3 something. Here she is before she went out to go line up!
We (there was another girl there at this point) went back to sleep for awhile and then woke up with a start that it was 8:45. We threw on some clothes and went out to see if we could catch Sarah around mile 2. I was thinking at this point that we were just going to go out and catch her to cheer her on and then go back to the hotel so I didn't put on good shoes or you know, shower.
I have a bunch of pics I was going to post but my computer is taking forever so I'll finish up later! I want to do some sewing today!
