Running in Chicago

I'm going to be a sporadic blogger the next week or so. We are extremely busy at work! I did manage a run on Monday evening after work. I decided to run downtown, along Lake Michigan, since I'm already down there for work. My neighborhood gets boring sometimes at home so I thought this might be a nice change of pace.

The run went good! I snapped some pictures along the way. I felt like a tourist going for a jog!
I'm almost to my final destination on the run, Navy Pier. You can see the big Ferris Wheel in the distance. Hello Lake Michigan!

Almost at the end of Navy Pier, my final destination before turning around and going back. I did not mean to take a picture of the garbage can. What I see in the distance are some interesting flags...here's a closer look.

Why...those are flags with the Chicago Blackhawks on them! Supporting the home team! Go Hawks, game 6 tonight! Just need 1 more win!

Chicago Skyline in the background. My run started around those buildings!

My running path. Sorry, another picture of a garbage can! There are so many bicyclists out now, you have to make sure you don't get run over!

Me in the bathroom at work afterward. I felt really good. I felt like I could have been out there all night long! But I needed to get back because I had to catch my train. The next one wouldn't have been for an hour!

So I guess if you have lost your running mojo...ahem...find a different place to run. Sometimes new scenery is the only thing you need to change!
