Under pressure

Today's run was mostly uncomfortable for me – tired, hot and hungry. Yesterday, due to problems encountered launching the new look and feel of the Chicago Park District website I didn't leave my desk except for bathrooom breaks so all I got to eat was granola bars and pop tarts until mid afternoon. Needless to say that when I woke up this morning I was really hungry and after 105 degree heat index yesterday it made it uncomfortable. The best part was that my fiancee Melissa was able to run with me despite being in the home stretch of her bar exam preparation this week. It's nice to know that despite the pressure of exams, wedding planning and work we can still run together and it feels the way it always does.
