Summer is Here!

Summer has finally arrived in Chicago and it is kicking my butt.   90s and high humidity.   I'm not used to this.    But I have been out there and getting my runs in.   I'm feeling pretty good,  my legs are a bit tired but I am really getting up in the mileage for me.    This week I have a 9 miler on Sunday.   It's supposed to be a bit cooler so that will help.   Only 5 more weeks and 2 days until the Rock and Roll Half.   I can't wait!    I need a sign off tagline.   Any ideas???

Outside, Yeah!

I finally got outside to run on Sunday.   6 miles.  It felt great.  Allergies are still rough, but much better.  Hopefully another week or two and they will be history!   I am currently doing Hal Higdons Intermediate Program for a Half Marathon.  I'm signed up for the Rock and Roll Chicago Half Marathon on August 2nd.   I can't wait for it.  Should be a fun one with all of the bands.   The intermediate is getting me ready for the intermediate marathon training program I'm going to use for Goofy.   I'm not used to running 5 days a week and this is tough.   Running on both days of the weekend is difficult.   I have to behave on Friday and Saturday nights now.  Bummer!!!  And no sleeping in at all on the weekend.  Major bummer!!!!!   But it will be worth it to get those three medals come January.
