So, we admit it - we've really slipped again at blogging. Mostly it's because our computer was so slow that it took forever to upload photos and post them to the blog. But, we just got a brand new MacBook Pro (early bday gift for John), so posting will be now be a breeze! We've been really busy lately. The weather has been pretty strange this summer -- it was cool for forever, then on Saturday it turned into a hot, humid, swampy mess, which definitely made my weekly half marathon training more difficult. On Saturday night, we went to one of our favorite summer festivals, Lincoln Park Summerfest (or as we like to call it, 'First Anniversary of Meeting Jared' since we met our fun friend at the festival last year). Basically this year was a repeat of last year, lots of 80's songs, sangria, and sweating. It was definitely fun, though (until the next morning, when I went into my sweatbox of an office and worked for 6 hours with the after-effects of all of that sangria).
Anyway, there will be more updates coming soon. We are going to Seattle this week for the Rock 'n' Roll Seattle Half Marathon. We are taking our new computer with us, so we promise to provide some updates along the way!
