Last night I went out to Edgefest with the wife and kiddo, and met up with another great mom and her daughter. We typically don't stay too late at festivals as we usually start thinking - bed time getting close for the kid and she has to eat, yada yada. But we weren't far from our building and the kid is old enough to live it up, so we stayed later than 7pm, crazy right? We were able to jam out to 16 Candles. Here are a few photos:

This morning's run was 8 miles, recovery pace. I forced myself to a slow gear to make sure that I didn't use up my legs at all. Thankfully it worked out and I stayed between 8:45 - 9 minute miles. My legs were a bit tired, but thankfully the aches from yesterday were gone.
Here are a couple photos from this morning's run:
I didn't see anyone whose name I knew, but I saw lots of my normal morning wavers. Total volume of runners on the path was low though. Gnats were still up and partying. The basketball courts had people playing on them by 5, and around 4:50 I saw two kids who couldn't be more than 16 walking with a basketball as well... would not approve..
Two random running thoughts:
What are the most popular running shirts you see when you go out? I see a LOT of Solider Field 10 mile shirts, Chicago Marathon, Chicago Half Marathon, and Ragnar.
And do you have any odd mental blocks on eating? I often feel that unless I run for at least like 10 miles, I didn't really earn that much more food. The number has gone up in relation to how many miles I do a week. That isn't to say I don't eat more, I just feel guilty about it. I do need to do a better job on bigger lunches, but I'm pretty lazy and have a PB&J every day..
And in non running news... Yesterday BBC announced who will play the 12th Doctor in Dr Who! Peter Capaldi was in Fires of Pompeii, Torchwood, and in World War Z he was "W.H.O. Doctor". And here is a fun video of some potential attitude we could see in the new doctor: (Warning - Swearing)
So that wasn't so short.. (TWSS)
Leave some! Have a good day
