Chicago + Training 6/16 to 6/22

I took Logan to Boston in April for a vacation, so this time it was Maddie's turn. We spent a few days in Chicago. I am glad I took her there. It was the first real exposure to a large city for her. I think it was a hit as her saying for the first two days was "this is heaven". By the third day it was hell and we were ready to come home. Some of the highlights were:

* Shedd Aquarium

* American Girl Store

* Ed Debevec's Diner

* Spending hours at the hotel pool

Photos can be viewed in the photo album starting on Monday.

I also had a chance to run with Jason Ream and his Fleet Feet buddies. Good guys. We went 15 and I got a nice tour of the city. Hopefully we can rope Jason into taking our 12th Hood to Coast spot.

Training - This is the official first week of training for a Fall Marathon. I am feeling stronger than I ever have at the beginning of a session. A few key races along the way will make it fun.

You are a brave and patient father to take your daughter to the "American Girl" store. Happy belated Father's Day, BTW!
