It has now been 5 days since the marathon and I'm feeling perfect! I'm ready for the Great Pumpkin 10k race tomorrow!
Now, about Chicago... on Saturday the 3 Cheap Runners and I made plans to meet. I've been following them for awhile, and was so excited to meet them! They know my love of ice cream, so we met at Pinkberry. It was my first time eating there, and it was amazing!
It also worked out for me to meet a few other facebook friends and bloggers there. We all had a great time and I loved getting to know each of them better.

I have to give a shout out to Mike too. Chicago was his first marathon and he did AMAZING! His time was 3:15! How crazy is that?! Woot woot!
I also want to thank Amanda. I would not have even considered running Chicago if she hadn't asked me to join her all those months ago. I am so glad she did, and I am so glad I did. She drove me all over the place. I think I would've died if I had to drive downtown on my own. This girl is seriously so much fun! We had a lot of great talks, and just had a wonderful time together. She will definitely be a friend for life. Mostly because she's tall like me. And friends like that are hard to find. ;)
Last night my BFF Charity took me out for my birthday. I'm 30 today. (Haha, I wish!) We ate at the Grape Leaf. I had heard so much about it, so was very excited to eat there! It's a delicious little Mediterranean restaurant in Louisville. I got the Eggplant Parmesan, which was amazing!!
After that, we went to SkyBar for a salsa dancing class! It was SO MUCH FUN! Ok, you need to understand, I am so not a dancer. Like, not at all. Like, embarrassingly bad and klutzy. Seriously, I can't dance.
During the class, we had to keep switching partners, and I felt so sorry for every guy I danced with! They were all very good and experienced and I was truly a beginner. I definitely stepped on a few toes! But they were all so sweet. They just laughed with me (well, probably AT me) and kept on going and really helped me. It was a blast!
And then, it was my turn to dance with the instructor. Talk about intimidating! And my darling Charity felt the need to tell him it was my birthday. He pulled me into a bear hug and EVERYONE sang happy birthday to me!!
Even though I looked like the biggest dork ever, I had so much fun, and definitely want to go back! I can only get better, right?
Have an awesome weekend!
Have you been salsa dancing? Is there hope for this girl?
