Hello From Chicago! I truly had the most amazing few days here in this city. I can't wait to talk about the race but for today thought I would just share a few photos from Friday and Saturday.
Friday I headed to the Expo, which was one of the best I've been to. I bought this shirt with the Chicago skyline on it and a matching Sparkly Soul headband that says Run Chicago. I also bought some Nuun because it came with a Chicago Water bottle! I also bought an obligatory race magnet (not pictured).
I had this shirt made at the expo.
But this jacket is my favorite purchase of all. I just love it!
Oh, and this was the Race shirt. A little bright but okay.
I was so happy to meet up with Running buddy Pam (From Two Runners Travel). It's so nice to see familiar faces in an unfamiliar city. I met up with her again Saturday and had lunch with her and her husband.
Friday night I was invited to a VIP cocktail party/ Happy hour. Sorry no pictures but it was pretty dark in the room we were at.
On Saturday, I met up with Alaina from The Simple Peach. This was my first time meeting Alaina. She is super sweet!
Later that afternoon I took my own tour of the city by going for a run.
That's all for now. Please visit back later this week when I share about race day! -L
We'll be linking up with the gals from TOTR.
