For Julie

Filed under: Augusta, Chicago, Friends — sashyjane @ 2:51 pm

I was blessed this weekend with a visit from my dear friend, role model and person I want to be one day, Julie. Julie and three other girls from Augusta ran the Chicago marathon in record time (they blew right past the Kenyans and Ethiopians as if they were standing still) and still managed to have the energy for celebratory drinks and dinner followed by some live jazz at The Green Mill.

Julie, Jen and Kristin post-race. How is it possible to look this good after 26.2 miles? I would look like a wreck after 26.2 feet of running.

During our delicious supper at the Hancock Tower, Julie reminded me that I have a blog.  Whoopsie. I’d completely forgotten all about it.  So even though I have a lot to catch up on and very little internet time with which to do so (I’m currently using McDonald’s WiFi and trying my hardest not to spank every loud, obnoxious brat in the joint. WHAT IS WRONG WITH PARENTS THESE DAYS?!)  I thought I’d just drop a quick post congratulating Julie, Jen, Kristin and Veronica on their huge accomplishment and thanking them (as well as their faithful cheerleaders, Sarah and Sarah) for a lovely visit.

Julie, now you don’t have to look at those 3 boys anymore :)



  1. Sara Jane, Sara Jane, Sara Jane…what a gift! Thank you! (I can now end the ongoing debate of whether or not the guy on the far right is putting his right hand IN his coat pocket…or taking it OUT.)

    Dinner on the 94th floor. The Green Mill. Time with dear friends that included YOU. Could I have asked for a better post-race night in Chicago? I think not.

    Thanks for making it so great!

  2. Thanks Sara Jane! It was great meeting you and a delight to have you join us at our post-race celebration. I only regret that I was too lame (literally) to join you for the post-post-race-dinner festivities!

  3. I don’t know how they managed to look that good after 26.2 miles! Incredible! Glad to see you are still apostin’ even if it’s rare. I wish you had internet!!!
