I went to Chicago last week and got back Sunday night. So the lack of blog posts was because I was busy enjoying deep dish pizza, 312 beer, and Cubs games. The first couple days in Chicago represented everything that's great about that city. The weather was warm. The Cubs were playing. People were out walking around enjoying the city. The beer and food were flowing like water. And the parks were crowded with people playing community sports. The last couple days, however, made me happy to come back to Hawaii (temporarily, at least). The weather literally went from 78 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday to 43 degrees and rainy when I left on Sunday morning.
As far as my triathlon training, I did a fairly decent job keeping up with it. I worked out a couple days, but not as many as I would have liked. I ate healthy, but couldn't control myself all week so I enjoyed a few unhealthy meals/snacks/desserts. Nonetheless, I am back at it and things are going pretty well.
