knowing i had to run/walk 22 miles by myself was intimidating. due to an all-day dyslexia training saturday, here i was at 7:30 with a water bottle and a sandwich bag of pretzels and cliff blocks (sticky sugar).
snapped this while still moving.
i'd biked this far before, but not seen it on foot.
9 rabbits in the first 5 miles, none after.
uncounted birds - robins and cardinals mostly.
no water fountain at milford. uh-oh.
lots of music on the shuffle.
4 hours 30 minutes
you've heard that the best things in life aren't things? agreed, they are people. i'd turned around at mile 11, and by 13 the water bottle was almost empty. here comes my sister, in the cold morning, on her bike. a beautiful sight.
this building is designed to reflect its neighbors.
there was a building designed so that no one had a "corner office", and another 1920s structure built to resemble a bottle of champagne.
the biggest topic was the 1871 fire in chicago, when its buildings were wood and so lost. this sad event enabled city planners to rethink and build anew. the 1909 chicago plan was a guide to development, and led to navy pier and its amusement park, the "magnificent mile" shopping district, and the lakefront parks. urban beauty.
how are you doing on these habits? here we are always working on nutrition. drinking chocolate shakes, but eating lots of veggies. i also highly recommend chocolats latour. after all, dark chocolate is a health food, right?
