I live in a two flat building with my older sister. My younger sister, nephew, and mom lived on the first floor. This past weekend they moved to a condominium in Palos Heights (about 40 minutes from where I live). My nephew is a freshman in high school and my sister wanted to live closer to this school. It is weird coming home and not seeing them here. Eventually I would like to buy a house for the two of us. Maybe next year in the Spring. I guess now I need to limit my Oiselle purchases. I told myself that I will only buy stuff on sale. 🙂 So here is what I got today: Long Rogas in Plum, Heather Grid Dolman, and Portman Pants in Plum.
With the move I inherited a piece of furniture from my mother. I am pleased that I now have one place to store my running gear. For now I have my shoes.
I have been running here and there. I went back to work last week. I am feeling more overwhelmed and exhausted each day. I don’t remember feeling like this in previous years. Last year I was training for the Chicago Marathon (running 6 days a week) and managed to do my runs. Hopefully in a few weeks things will settle down and I won’t feel too overwhelmed. Today my students behaved well. I even got compliments from two teachers telling me that I have a good group of students. 🙂
On Saturday I signed up for the Illinois Marathon on April 28 in Champaign, IL. I did the marathon relay with some friends in 2015. Despite the tornado warning/watch (can’t remember what it was), we had a great time and managed to finish the race. I am actually excited about the marathon next year!
From the Illinois Marathon website: Along with the marathon, there is a 5k, 10k, and half marathon. Runners who complete the 5K on Friday and then the 10K, half marathon, full marathon, or marathon relay on Saturday will receive a special I-Challenge medal. This means, in all, you will receive:
- Two shirts (5K shirt plus the 10K, half marathon, marathon, or marathon relay shirt)
- Three medals (5K medal plus the 10K, half marathon, marathon, or marathon relay medal as well as an I-Challenge medal [different for each I-Challenge])
- Bragging rights
- Full I-Challenge = 5K + marathon
- Marathon Relay I-Challenge = 5K + marathon relay
- Half I-Challenge = 5K + half marathon
- Mini I-Challenge = 5K + 10K
Registration fees are below and will increase after August 31 so make sure to sign up today!
