I survived the first weekend of college football. Barely, but I survived.
For those of you who don’t know, I’m an avid Iowa Football fan. I grew up on the program (4th generation Hawkeye), graduated from the University of Iowa and have a love for my Hawkeyes deeper than most people do for their significant other. Maybe not quite, but you get the picture.
I traveled to Chicago with a bunch of friends for the Iowa/Northern Illinois season opener at Soldier Field (where the Bears play). I’ll sum up the awesomeness of last weekend through a few pictures:
After Chicago, I made my way up to Lauderdale Lakes where my family has a place on the lake. I enjoyed the boat, swimming and summer for the final weekend of the season. Here’s a taste of Heaven on Earth:
Onto my running update (which is what the point of my blog is):
Not much to talk about. Horrible, I know. I have the St. Louis half marathon in 5 1/2 weeks and have been running MAYBE three times a week. I have yet to do a long weekend run, let alone even pass 5 miles. Needless to say, I’m starting to freak out. Thank god my summer starts winding down this week so I’ll have more time to dedicate to running. Any motivation you runners can offer a sista? It’d be much appreciated.
