November Adventure Summary

November 2014

November was a boring month in terms of travel.  Except for a trip home at the end of the month for Thanksgiving weekend, I didn’t leave Chicago.  Most of my time was spent working and preparing for some fun in December.

My friend came to visit at the beginning of November.  I hadn’t seen her since my semester abroad in Chile six years ago, so it was wonderful to see her again.  We did a walking tour of downtown Chicago and found some nice views of the city.

I also ran my first 15K race!  It was cold, and I felt like I should have trained harder, but I made it to the end.  Then, I promptly went out for celebratory Chicago style pizza and gained back all of the calories I had just burned.

A relaxing Thanksgiving weekend at home was just what I needed at the end of an intense month.  I hung out with my family and ate lots of delicious food, and now I’m back in Chicago for just a few days before I head out again for a conference.

Where did you go in November?
