You are very correct...it is the worst way. But I keep reminding myself that I have a possible Star Wars with sister's family (sometime in a galaxy far far away) and 2021 trip with hubby/kiddo on the most possibly maybe list.Is that really the best way to conquer FOMO?
I don't know all the rules of soccer. I've watched hockey for such a long time that I'll pick up on things like offsides and set playes, etc, but I don't pretend to understand it all. I do know that watching it in person up close is more fun than on tv because man do these athletes run fast. They go from what you think is fast to sooooo fast in two seconds. I'm always amazed when they can chase down a ball that I'd just be standing there waving good bye to.I love that your weekly recaps are back Great consistency!
How cool (&hipsterish haha) do you two sound drinking whiskey in your basement and listening to Disney records?! Can I come drink a whiskey diet coke (hold the whiskey) and listen along?
I only 60% understand soccer, but am a big fan of that women's team regardless- what a fun evening for RoxyKiddo!
Those ears are so awesome! I hadn't ever seen the mickey on the back until this picture.I saw these online the other day and thought of you.

Doing all the things is not possible, doing some of the things you love is also not always possible, so good on you for cutting yourself some slack. Regularly writing IS hard, and will be there when you need it and when things change (as they always do) and you find yourself typing away again. Until then- Hot Chocolate has always sounded fun to me so I hope you have the opportunity to share your experience when you finish.
That can absolutely happen. I have many things I threaten to do for my own training journal. Well it's September now and I've posted little more about the marathon than I did it. Life got very busy after I got back and hasn't really slowed down since.I still love race recaps and throwing down silliness now and then, I just think life was at a different pace the last few years prior to last year.
Priorities matter. And that may well mean typing up a quick recap of running here just isn't anywhere near the top of that list.I may just need to embrace that right now there isn't enough "free-time"/"me-time" to devote to it.
While both of my parents are still here, I talk with clients frequently who have lost one or both of their parents. It isn't easy. Nor do I believe is it supposed to be. Family relationships and bonds matter very much. Those bonds help us find happiness and joy in this life and give us something to look forward to in the life to come.Emotionally I'm still grieving (though I'd like to put on a brave face as much as possible) and to say my stress levels are elevated would be pretty accurate. I turn to sad more often than happy which isn't like me in general.
Millenium Park is really convenient and safe if the race is starting by DuSable Harbor. This is where the Rock N Roll races used to start for the 5k distances and lots of Chicago races start near there. It's probably not starting at the actual boat yard but on the lake shore path and green space next to it. I've also ran some turkey trots from there. It's probably going to be about 3/4 mile from a Millenium Park hotel depending on which one you choose.Howdy! I'm looking to book my hotel room and have a question....
If I stay in the Millenium Park area will I be able to safely walk to the start? Google Maps says it's about a 20 minute walk, but we know reality can be quite different! And is the start address really 111 N Lake Shore Drive??? It's a boat yard??? I was hoping they would have put out a course map by now
