It's Official - I got a 10k PR!

The 17th state was checked off on Saturday with a wonderful trip with my 2 daughters. I ran the Lombardi Classic 10k in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1:03:05. Two weeks earlier I ran the ZOOMA Annapolis 10k in 1:05:03. A new 10k PR!!!! The course was through the Milwaukee Zoo - so what better way to start off a morning than to run past elk, caribou, grizzly bears, giraffes and emu! I loved every minute of it. Afterwards, my daughters and I enjoyed a morning filled with more animals. Before heading to Chicago (for a little Magnificent Mile time), we made a spontaneous trip to the Jelly Belly factory. The tour was so-so (a bit boring) but the samples were great and the jelly belly hat totally made the trip worthwhile! We made it to Chicago in time to do sufficient damage to the Visa card before enjoying a Giordano deep dish pizza (I hope I burned off enough calories to make this splurge not as damaging!)...mmmmmmm! On the drive back Sunday we hit the University of Notre Dame to enjoy the bookstore and grounds. Overall, wonderful race - wonderful trip! Below are some pictures of the weekend -

  1. Congrats! Sounds like a wonderful trip!

  2. Good job! Meg's pics online display a lot of fun! Did I mention that we have considered/ing the Gorilla Run? A friend from AZ is hoping to head up and trying to convince us as well. Just waiting on S/West to extend flight dates through November and then we will see...

  3. Congratulations! Nice PR!

    Chicago robs me a good way.
