Total Races: Two – Chicago Half and Fort2Base

 

Total PRs: Two
Time: Fort2Base
Distance: 20 miles

Total Miles: 142
Running: 127
Walking: 15

Charity walks attended: One, the AHA’s Heart Walk

Books read: One (well that’s embarrassing, but I did get really into SongPop for a bit)

Conferences attended: One

  • Social Media Week (Chicago): I wasn’t sure what to expect, as this was a free conference, but it was great. The sessions I attended were very well done, the presenters very knowledgable, the information very useful. I’ve never attended a social media-specific conference, but I’ve attended plenty of marketing-specific conferences, and I think I got more out of these free sessions than any of those pricey conferences I’ve attended in the past. [My full-time job is in online marketing, so I was attending for professional reasons, although I certainly learned things that I can apply to my own personal blogging.]

Babies met: Two, both the children of friends

Long Grove Apple Festival Chef Klaus Bier Stube - Peotone

Weddings attended: One, The Sailor’s best friend married our friend of 15+ years. The Sailor was the best man. (And he wore his uniform, ooh la la.)

 

September sunrises … and a rainbow!

Good morning Chicago

Rainbow!

 

AND TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY! OMG. WTF. I pray that I get some sleep tonight.
