I survived the Midwest which usually consists of predictably unpredictable weather, lots of unhealthy food and a ton of family time. It was actually the perfect visit home with Brittany by my side.

It was really great to be back home with the little people and all of my amazing family. I am so lucky to have a family I can actually stand being around (except when we get into religious or political discussions). It’s amazing how your perspective shifts when you inch closer to 30. I am more grateful for that crazy family of mine than ever before.
The weather back home was either horribly hot and humid or raining with thunder and lightning so most of my runs were on the treadmill.
I grew up on them but realized they’re a total Midwest thing.
Also, after living out in California for many years, I realize that a lot of people out here consider Illinois to be part of the east coast. I make it a point to say “the Midwest” every time I mention where I’m from. 🙂
