Yes I live in suburbia, but I'm not confined here! I work in the city and am often in the city other nights hanging out with friends. Where I live shouldn't define who I am...I just got a lot more space for my money and I'm close to my dogwalkers (my parents!).
I'm working on finding my inner athlete again. I've signed up for my first 5Ks this year...from the first to the last I dropped 8 minutes! Next years goal is 1 a month! I do my best to follow Chicago sports teams...but I don't live with ESPN on in the background (not that there is anything wrong with that). I'm always up for going out to a game or watching it in a bar somewhere with friends. Never been to a Bears game... but I will have been by the end of the year..thanks to a road trip to Cleveland.
Consider myself pretty well-travelled...thanks to being raised in an airline family! I am always looking for somewhere new and exciting to go to. I make it a point to go to one new place a year...doesn't have to be exotic, just somewhere I've never been. Last year it was Nashville and Louisville. This year I ventured outside of the -villes to Cape Town, South Africa to run a 5K...it was amazing!! Next year's trips include my beloved Maui and Dublin.
