Chicago Marathon Training: Week 14 Complete

Another week complete!

After our 5K yesterday we had a 40th birthday party to attend. Us at the party.

Today’s long run was 12 miles. I ran around the neighborhood before lunch. The temperature was 65 degrees with 17 mph winds. It was sunny, but still cool out.

Later that afternoon we had the first flight of our friend Terry’s plane. He built the same type of plane as ours, except the model is the 7A (tricycle gear instead of taildragger).
Us taxing over to Terry’s hanger.

Rob and I flew in our plane and took video and our friend Jack (with the same plane as ours) took one of Terry’s grandchildren in his plane and we followed Terry as he tested out this new ride. The flight went well!
