It’s been a while so let’s catch up!
I ran the Chicago Marathon! I didn’t PR and I had major stomach issues at the end of the race, but it was still a really great day. We had perfect running weather, my Mom, Uncle, husband, and Allie were waiting at the finish, and I ran with two of my CES buddies so overall it was a great race.
I’m still coaching with CES this winter, but I’m taking a break from racing. We are trying for baby #2 and hope to do an embryo transfer in early January. I’m really excited and feel ready for a second baby. If I get pregnant in January our kids will be two years apart.
The Chicago Cubs won the World Series!!!!!!! It was one of the best days of my life. I was lucky to be able to go to 2 World Series games with my Dad and stepmom.
My Mom and I took Allie to the Cubs parade. We didn’t go to the Grant Park celebration, but we went to Wrigley to see the start of the parade. I was worried the crowds were going to be insane (they were), but it was very family friendly and easy because Allie stayed in the baby carrier the whole time.
Allie took her first two steps last week and she’s done it again a few more times. I’m so excited for her to be a walker. My baby girl is growing up.
We have been busy with lots of playdates. Our mornings are always busy with Stroller Strides and then we usually try to meet up with our friends a couple of times a week in the afternoon.
I’m teaching Stroller Strides in Glenview! When I started teaching the only opening was in Evanston (20 minute drive), but they had an opening in Glenview so I’m happy to have a shorter commute and I love the group of Moms.
Here’s a sneak peek of our photo shoot. My Mom is a photographer and she got some great shots. I can’t wait to order our holiday cards.
Happy early Thanksgiving! I hope everyone enjoys some good food and time with their family. <3
