Frank Lloyd Wright 10k – and a Video!

Good morning 🙂 Sorry I’m a little late in posting! I’ve been waiting for a (rather embarrassing) video to process for the post 😉

Yesterday’s 10 k ended up being SO much fun. We got off to a rocky start because we left a little later than planned and got to the start line just in time !




We got this! haha

And after a slow shuffle through the start line, we were off!



I stuck with Kim the entire time, and we had SO much fun. I don’t think we stopped talking. Or singing, for that matter. And revealing that we’re really 12. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

Sorry the video is upside down – hard to think about these things when running a 10k 😉

There were many more videos, but trust that one is enough. I’ll spare you 😉

We actually couldn’t believe it at mile 4! Running for 35 minutes felt like 10! Then right when we passed the 5 mile marker, it started to rain – which wasn’t great. But we picked up our pace and ended up finishing in 57:53!





(notice the water bottles doubled as bagel holders this year 😉 )


An automatic PR for Kim, since it was her first 10k! 😀

We didn’t hang around too long after the race, and headed straight to this cute little restaurant called Georgia’s for a nice hot breakfast.



We want food! We want food!


I’ve declared my adoration for omelets when dining out for breakfast, and my commitment didn’t falter now, either:



Omelet. In yo face.

It was delicious! And felt great to have some hot food and hot coffee in our systems.

Next stop was Trader Joe’s…



TJ’s exploded on my counter!

By this time, it was already 1:00, and I still had the 2.5 hour drive back home – which actually went by a lot quicker than I anticipated (thankfully.) Oh, and you’ll be happy to know I did just fine driving in Chicago traffic. I’m pretty sure I drive 100 x’s better without anyone else in the car, as I’m less distracted then.

But, that didn’t make saying goodbye any less difficult…



I don’t know about you, but I get pretty bummed out after a day or two of seeing some of my “family” and then not seeing them again for a while. However, I’m much worse when I’m the leave-ee; when I’m the leav-er I have other things to occupy my mind…like the drive home and seeing the husband and the pets!

What a fun weekend!!! It was a busy one, though – that’s for sure. Hopefully I’ll get some R&R this week 😉 At least today won’t be too busy. A client here and there and then a volleyball game! Probably will head to the gym at one point or another, too.

Have a lovely Monday, lovelies! 🙂
