oh my.

That is all I have to say about my life the past five weeks. To sum: Oh my. I'm trying to find the words to sum up, and not bore you to death, on the past five weeks. Putting it properly into words will be a feat. I have been busy, especially this week. Life has been... interesting. But the results, the results of the past five weeks are very good.

Saturday I'm leaving for the lovely and chilly and fabulous Chicago. I CAN. NOT. WAIT. The Robinson's are ready to get out of Wichita for awhile. I plan to eat myself into oblivion (thanks to rachel), drink homebrewed beer, tour the city (also thanks to rachel), volunteer at the marathon (again, all rachel), squeeze my baby cousin Brian's face (please note he is 27 and a medical student, then we will have a snowball fight and snuggle, he can't wait) and take a bajillion and three photos.

In other news. My foot is doing wonderfully. I get to go for my first official post stress fracture run in Chicago along Michigan Lake. Isn't that wonderful? In the meantime I am SORE, I've been working out like mad this week so I don't feel puny on vacation. It's the good kind of sore. I am feeling good interwebs. Emotionally spent, but physically, really well.

Until next week blahgesphere!

Glad your SF is healing and that you will finally be able to run!! And in Chicago, no doubt. I still have a month before I can run after my SF...enjoy your time at the marathon. Hopefully next year you (and I) will be running!

Good to know you are well...have missed you in Bloggy land. Have FUN FUN in Chicago.. Yell for Morgan (Jen Morgan AKA REd HEad Running) and Beth (Velma in Bloggy land)..

"We need you. Hell, I need you. I'm a mess without you. I miss you so damn much. I miss being with you, I miss being near you. I miss your laugh. I miss your scent; I miss your musk. When this all gets sorted out, I think you and me should get an apartment together" LOL Hugs...

I've never been to Lake Mic., but it sounds like the perfect spot for a post-injury run. Enjoy!
