Last week I had to go to Chicago for a training class. Apparently it came free when we purchased our mass spectrometer. I think I should have gone a couple of months ago, though. I already knew most of the stuff that was covered in the class.
They did give us lunch every day so that was a bonus. Yes, I had a small piece of the Chicago-style pizza.
My husband came along. He rented a car and drove around to various places while I was in class all day. We did get to the city on Friday night and checked out the Field Museum and saw a concert at Blue Chicago. Shirley Johnson. She was good and had a great band. Unfortunately we missed the 10:40pm train back to Wood Dale and had to wait for 2 hours for the next one. We were pretty tired when we flew back on Saturday.
I was good and kept up with my running and did some elliptical as cross training. I got in a 3 mile "long run" on Sunday.
