Dawn and I flew out to Chicago on friday. Here is what we did:
Friday: arrival | Taxi to Hotel | taxi/train to downtown | ate at Millers pub, had a “hellovaburger” | wandered to Millennium park | played with cameras and saw Lake Michigan | took the redline train to Sox 35th ave | Bought a White Sox hat and chatted with salesman about baseball | took photos in and around the stadium (link coming soon) | enjoyed a Chicago style Hot dog | dodged the rain by luckily buying seats just underneath the overhang | laughed at the D-Train when he fell | headed home for the night | felt bad we laughed at D-Train after seeing he hurt himself on sportscenter

Saturday: Taxi to train/argued with cabbie about museums me:”Where are the good museums at?” cabbie:”soldier field” me:”isn’t that where the bears play?” cabbie:”no they play at Wrigley Field” me:”no thats where the Cubs play… so, Which museum do you recommend?” cabbie:”soldier field” | taxi/train Runners edge to pick up our “Race to Wrigley” shirt and stuffs | took taxi/train to Threadless | bought 3 new shirts including the in-store exclusive shirt | traveled to the loop for Pizano’s Pizza had a deep dish veggie and tomato garlic bread | Went to the Field Museum by soldier field (apparently cabbie wasn’t screwing with me) saw Evolution (“how to become a fossil. step one, die”-actual museum quote) and Egypt | walked through Millennium park to N Michigan Ave for the Magnificent Mile | shopping/Banana mocha latte and chocolates/Lego store/Niketown/more walking | eventually dinner at Berghoff | train/bus home

Sunday: 530 wake up | 600 pick up came 20 min late and tried bringing us to the wrong place | took orange train to red train to addison stop for the “Race to Wrigley” 5K | dropped of our coats at the gear check | got safety pins for our numbers | lost Dawn | found Dawn | National anthem | Start race | walk to starting line | start running | weaving in and out of people | finish the first 3 miles and entered the last bit through the Wrigley stadium concourse, this really ruined any sort of record time for me in that I’m slowing down to look around the place | exit stadium and FINISH | clock reads 33 min, but based on the time it took from start to us actually moving I’m saying it took us 30 min | got water, banana and gatorade | went shopping for cubs stuff | Dawn got a soriano jersey, I got an cubs logo shirt and a shot glass | heading back to hotel for shower and packing | Giordano’s for lunch | zucchini stick and stuffed Veggie deep dish | airport/crossword puzzles/waiting for long time | Home.
