South Shore CC, Chicago. Got up at 3am for a 6:45am doctor's appointment. New doc, lengthy commute down to his office on the south side. Wanted to start on the right foot with this guy, so got there an hour early. But when 6:45 rolled around, still no doc, no nurse, no receptionist, no lights. Somebody finally wandered in after 7. Huh? Isn't getting to a 6:45am doctor's appointment difficult enough?

Later took the South Chicago Metra after walking through Hyde Park past Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House. Played nine holes; wanted to play 18 but must still be exhausted from yesterday's six mile run. Home by 11am.

Serious rain and thunder at dawn....then it all blew across Lake Michigan, leaving Chicago in a delightfully warm, sunny day. Did my 'long' run in preparation for my first 10k next weekend. Felt in control the entire way; no sense of exhaustion. Last year I did the 10k in 1:53; I'd love just to get below 2 hours now.

Hiking all over with bag of golf clubs. Took train all the way north to Libertyville with the idea of playing a round. But when I alit from the train the cold wind convinced me to get back on, and forget about golf. So four hours wasted this morning, plus a lot of aimless walking, looking stupid. Who would want to play golf in this weather?

NordicTrak 10:00 [3]

Erg rowing 24:35 [3] 5.0 km (4:55 / km)

Spent yesterday attending Dark Lord Day at the 3 Floyds Brewery in Munster, Indiana. Took shuttle buses both ways. Me and 40 000 twenty-somethings, listening to a series of heavy metal bands, drinking Russian Imperial Stout, and basking in the spring sun. A lot of people-watching from my Silva combo seat/backpack I brought back from O-Ringen. A lot of obese people watching. Looking around, it is hard to determine why there is so much enthusiasm for defeating Roe v Wade in states like Alabama and Indiana...does the world really need more slackers?

Actually I didn't get that much beer...the crowds overwhelmed all the vendors. But I did bring home five large bottles of the stuff, which I'm supposed to age for several years in the celler. Four of the bottles were the famous Russian Imperial Stout called Dark Lord; the fifth bottle was something special. Kind of a lottery, and I received 'rrari Crochet (bottle 1407 of 1700)...which is already being sold on Craigslist for $500.
