After a very stressful drive into Chicago (I thought driving in downtown Louisville was stressful, but it doesn't even compare!!) I met Michelle at the hotel and we walked over to a Mexican restaurant for marg's. It was so good and MUCH needed!
Weber Grill for our dinner reservation. If you're ever in Chicago, go there!! It was delicious. (Make a reservation though, otherwise you'll have a long wait)

Sunday morning we walked down to the Navy Pier. It was awesome seeing everything 'in person', instead of only in pictures!
|What a view!|
We saw LOTS of runners out. Probably most of whom will be running the marathon next weekend. I gotta say, it made me really wish I was running it! Maybe next year...
And of course we ended the trip with Pinkberry. It was heaven. Seriously.
I LOVE Chicago! This was my first time really getting to see the city. Of course I ran through it last year for the marathon, but I was so sick and miserable that I didn't even look around or enjoy it. Then I left when the race was over, so didn't do any sight seeing.
I can't wait to go back! Although next time I think I'll fly, rather than drive. ;)
And hanging out with Michelle was a blast. Getting to spend time with her confirmed what I already knew, she is a precious, sweet girl, who is an incredible friend. I wish Canada wasn't so far from Kentucky. Can't wait to plan our next adventure!
Have you been to Chicago?
Did you run or race this weekend?
