That's right it is January 6th and I got to wear some shorts! Craziness for sure. In Chicago on Weds it was -6 degree (real feel) and today just 3 short days later a cloudy but comfortable 51 degrees. Of course by the time I return from my business trip Thursday it will be 30 something and snow showers but at least I got a taste of spring for 1 day in January. Not much to report on the run itself. I haven't been running consistently so I wasn't sure how I would do and it's been awhile since I have braved the outdoors. It went great and I finished strong on a short 3 1/2 mile route. Now off to pack and run errands before my flight down to Florida then back up to Atlanta. So over the business travel thing.
On a side note I think I found my ceremony/reception venue. A little more than I wanted to pay but it's perfect. Located 2 blocks west of Michigan Avenue it is this recently rehabbed studio with a gorgeous garden right in the middle of the city. Centrally located for all the out of towners (which is ~100 of my guests). Now all I have to do is sign the contract and give them a big chunk of my money. I am holding out for August 30th/Labor day weekend but some other bridezilla already has the date on hold. If she doesn't pony up the money the place is mine! Evil I know but a lot of girls out here put holds on multiple places at one time while they continue to look. Here's hoping she's that girl. Keep your fingers crossed!!!
