Back from Chicago

We returned home from Chicago last night.
I missed Miles. I really missed Miles. I have not ever missed a kid like I did him on this trip. I had a really hard day on Saturday, in fact.
But, enough about that.
We had a great trip. We went to the park. We went to a fall carnival where Mason enjoyed a petting zoo. He also had a great time on an obstacle course bounce house. He did such a great job on it and we had to pull him off it several times.
Eric had a great run on Sunday at the Chicago Marathon. He finished in 3:31 which put him in 2246th place overall. Considering the registration is capped at 45,000 runners and it always fills up, that is SO stinking amazing!! It was another very warm day, with temps over 80 at the finish of the race. Thankfully, the city was much more prepared than last year and had plenty of water, wet sponges, misting areas, etc. And, nobody died this year. That is ALWAYS a plus!
Seriously, I am very proud of Eric and even more excited that his training is done. At least until he starts getting ready to run this race........

Speaking of training.....
Friday: 5 miles - 57:58
Sunday: too many miles walking around Chicago chasing to see Eric run by and pushing Mason (all 43 lbs of him) in the stroller. I consider that a serious workout!
Tuesday: 3.5 miles - 35:30
