Long time no write. Well I’ve been busy, you see.
Summary: I live in Chicago. I am in LOVE with Chicago. Love it, love it, love it. I love the hum of the city. I love the heat! I love the running. I am in love.
Confession: I am having a really hard time adjusted to the heat weather wise. Humidity and 80 degrees is NOT something I am used to at 5 am. But I am adjusting. Last Thursday I finally got my pace back and it was dang hot. I ran 13 miles yesterday. I ran slowish, somewhere between 8:45-9:00 miles and it was smart. See? Running smart. I sorta love the challenge of the heat. I’ve missed heat for so long living in Seattle that it is incredibly satisfying to sweat. I think I sweat a total of 5 times in Seattle while running in three years. I deserve to be a hot mess sometimes.
Here are some quick pics:
Apartment. Tiny. No air conditioning BUT LOOK AT THOSE WINDOWS. Awesome! IN LOVE.
My new running route!
The roof at my internship where I eat lunch.
That is all I’ve got for now. I’m off to World Market (ummm can you say dangerous? I can. Goodbye money.)
I plan to blog a bit more regularly highlighting the happiness that my new life has brought me.
