Yeah, sorry. Facebook is my blog these days.
I've been trying to keep up with the runs, but Chicago hates me this year. Cold, wet, cold, damp, cold, and gray--all of June, and quite a few of my running days in July too. It's enough to drive a girl to the desert.
But I'm running the Fleet Feet Women's 10K this weekend. Then jetting off to the West Coast. I'm sensing a pattern!
I haven't been completely lazy though. I've been doing wushu at Chicago Wushu. It's completely perfect for me. I love the school, the instructors, the teaching style, and the art itself. I'm really digging it.
So, to combine my two limited athletic talents and keep me moving and motivated I worked out a summer plan: I got permission to go to work early on Friday mornings so I can leave by 4:30. That'll get me home in time to change into running clothes, grab my wushu shoes, and run the two quick miles up to the guan (school). It's not a long run, but it's a heavy warm-up for a two-hour class! But I've done it a few times already and it really feels good. It's a great intro to the weekend, when I do a lot more playing that working.
