1) I went for a run this morning and was rained on, snowed on, AND sunned on (technical term…) all in a matter of 1.5 hours.
sun, 60°, a wandering stroll home, busy day at work, denver tomorrow, no flu (hooray!), colorful paddle boats, dinner comped…what’s not to love?
slapshot, the purple line, belmont, lincoln park west, penny’s noodles, snapped rudder cables, vbgfs, fam bonding, river north, a run down sheridan road, morning walks, chicago yacht club, giordano’s, the gnar, lake michigan, lakeview, castle, kitchen table chats, cinnamon rolls, Dave’s, magnolia trees, brick roads, sheffield’s, 13th and ashland.
Hanging in Chicago for a few days before heading to SD for a little Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, and Black Hills action. Escaped just before a foot of snow hit Summit County. PHEW!
My friend Ryan took me to Table Mesa in Golden, CO, to teach me how to climb. I made it up the wall and then froze the first time I had to rappel down. Luckily with Ryan’s coaching, I grew a pair and made it down, only to scoot back up again. I feel like Wonder Woman.
