The beginning of a looong weekend

My weekend began Thursday. I had signed up for the Chase Corporate Challenge, and Thursday was the day. Two of my coworkers and I drove up after work and got ready to run/walk 3.5 miles. I was excited to see friends I have not seen for a while from Peoria.

I was in the non-competitive division, so it really didn’t matter my time, but a few of my coworkers decided to run it twice….I was glad to know that I was able to finish before they completed it the second time. I would have felt a little crappy if I had been lapped by people who were running it for fun the second time.

So, here I am looking all disheveled with my fun friends from work. The coolest part was that the company had this massive tent, food, and beer for all of us to celebrate. The people I went down to the city with and I hit up Kitty O’Shea afterward for a quick beer. The place was full of other racers, so we weren’t that out of place in our sweats and race gear.


And who doesn’t love looking at the skyline at night?
