It is real. Tomorrow we are getting on a plane and fly north.  I actually started this post Thursday night before I lost my mind with packing, creating a playlist, and checking things off my to-do list.  Hot mess party of one, right here. 

Yesterday was a whirlwind of work, travel, and good food. We landed in chicago and it wasn't until we were driving into the city, that I felt that first rush of insane excitement. Oh. my. god. Fall racing season is here and I am mind glowingly, pee-in-my-pants excited. I still CANNOT believe we are in Chicago. 

We got to our hotel, got freshened up and then met a friend down stairs for cocktails and food. 
My head is about to explode from how pumped I am right now to be in Chicago.  
This morning we went for an amazing shake out run around the start line and lake. 
Tons of runners were out and about on easy runs before tomorrow. 
The excitement in the air is palpable. (Or maybe it is just in my head, which I am ok with too) The weather is actually a little warmer  (but still SO much cooler than FL) than I expected today, but there is a cold front supposedly coming through today. The morning was just gorgeous to welcome us to town. 

(Thanks Christine for indulging my picture taking!!!)

Off to the expo now.
