This morning, I awoke to do my Sunday Morning run. I looked around and remember that I was downtown Chicago and quickly got dressed and ran out of the room. I was excited for the first time to be running along the lakeside when not entered in a race. I wanted to take everything in. My hotel was on Michigan Avenue but I found myself quickly running down the lakeshore. I ran to Navy Pier, passed the tour boats, next to the ferris wheel, and to the end. Even though the morning was gray and misty, it felt so alive outside. There were very few others out this early. The silence and solitude was refreshing.

It was the perfect ending to the weekend dowtown with Hooch(my Daughter), my sister-in-law, and my niece. We had a great time, shopped alot, ate good food, then could barely stop laughing to fall asleep.

Tomorrow it's back to dieting and training but I feel this weekend was just what I needed.

Waddling into new week ..............

Sounds great. I love when you can be in a HUGE city, but still feel solitude. Have a great week!!

Yes, sometimes it is just what you need to play hookey.

Glad to hear you enjoyed our fair city. The Lakefront is an excellent place to run.
