I was expecting about 20, and was surprised to see 49. Then I remembered I ran the Chicago Marathon earlier in the month. :)
My ankle is still a little swollen, so I've been taking It easy on the running front. I started doing strength training after each of my runs which (is making me sore) but also seems to be helping my ITB tremendously.
I indulged in soft stinky cheese and farmers market bread. And it was freaking delicious.
Even went to a Barrel Aged Beer academy at the Goose Island brewery. Those types of beer I usually avoid, but was pleasantly surprised :)
I've had some nice runs with the Churro Dog this past month. We like cruising the lakefront on the weekends for 4-5 miles.
I dressed him up yesterday as a "mummy" for the Fido to go truck contest. After the photo was taken, he shook and all the toilet paper fell off. Needless to say He wasn't entered in the contest. He still got some yummy treats and got to see his "girlfriend"- a leggy blonde greyhound (the only dog he likes in our building.)
Next week he goes for surgery to remove a growth on his chest. :(
I'm sure he will be fine. But I'm still worried about my precious bear.
I haven't registered for a turkey trot yet. I'm leaning towards the Saturday one since I can walk to the start. I'm having a hard time registering since I'm not 100% yet and would want to race.
