Back to Reality

We arrived back from the sandy beaches and sunny skies of Puerto Vallarta late Sunday night to be abruptly faced with... the sunny skies and sandy beach of Chicago! The weather here has been really nice since we've arrived back home, and I've been enjoying the time back going to the beach with friends, enjoying the tunes of U2 at Soldier Field, and meeting Rhett for lunch in Oak Brook, where he works. So I guess that being said it's been back to reality for one us, that "one" definitely not being me.
Our trip was Wonderful! We left for the trip on Monday, June 27th and came back on July 3rd. It was seven days and 6 nights of pure bliss. Our resort was up in the beautiful mountainside of Puerto Vallarta. We spent our time relaxing by the beach and at the pool, drinking yummy frozen drinks, and dining at romantic beachside restaurants. It was so nice to spend so much quality time together and be totally and completely relaxed. I took a bit of a break from my running, so had to kick in full gear when I arrived back home. This Saturday my training group and I tackle 10 miles, the most we've done so far. We are in week 5 of our training, in 13 weeks I'll be tackling 26.2 miles! Thanks so much for everyone who has encouraged me with their words, donations, and love. Having this marathon has eased the pain of our journey with infertility, it has given me both focus and solace and made me feel successful with each mile further I go. I would want someone to help our future children if they fell ill, and it makes me happy to know I am making a difference. Much love to you all!
