Back at it for race 3!
This time it was just my mom and I in Chicago for the weekend. We love staying at old, vintage hotels in the city and fine dining. On of our favorite restaurants is Bijans, located on Lake and Eerie. I always get the grilled portabella salad with goat cheese and basalmic vinagrette. So good 🙂
The race expo is one of my favorite parts of the weekend. It must be the runner in me, but I love looking at all the cool running gear and trying all the samples!
For dinner my mom and I went to Giocco’s, an authentic Italian restaurant. We try to go to a new restaurant each time we visit the city. This place was legit- it had a real speak easy and bullet holes from Al Capone! A quick random fact about me- I love the mafia and find it very intriguing! (Yes, I am odd!)
After dinner we walked around Millennium Park and headed back to our hotel. I love the city at night. So beautiful!
Like the past two races, I loved this one just as much! I met up with Kelly’s family before the race like normal- it has almost become an unspoken tradition!
Another race down in the books!
