Oh man you guys, today was BY FAR the best workout I’ve had! The weather was vomitously gorgeous, I was feeling excited, and I got to go with three of my most favorite people in the world. We were like a herd of awesome.
Dave and Jesse were particularly happy to be working out.
I can’t believe what a difference it makes to work out in a group! You’d think I would have figured that out earlier, since I’ve only ever been on sports teams. But it’s not the same when you’re on swimteam, because you can’t talk and laugh and sing at each other when your face is in the water. You can, however, pee in the pool, so I guess that’s what sets swimming apart from running. We ended up going about four miles (long run for the week: CHECK), broken up by a tour through Navy Pier.
So, my reason for being glad today is a no-brainer – I was blessed to be joined by dear friends who turned a hard (for me) workout into a fun day. Also I almost got killed by a bicyclist, so apparently the theme of this week’s workouts is near-death experiences.
Also, I ran into a couple of Dave’s relatives.
