When I visit a new city, I like to do a few of the same things each time:
1. Run - it's the perfect way to maximize sightseeing and get through several miles in a short time
2. Ride the public transit system - I like to compare other city's systems to the Metro
3. Visit the local Kate Spade store (weird, I know)
You may remember my Run Through DC Post from last year, when I carried my phone along with me and took photos of the sites and scenery as I ran. So, here's the "run" blog: Chicago Edition.
Thanks to Kern's Nike Fitness App, we were able to track our exact milage and do a 10K.
|We started running down the Mag Mile towards the Lakefront.|
|The Pump House|
|I was in awe of how blue Lake Michigan looked--gorgeous!|
|Bike rentals! Another fabulous way to the see the city.|
|We ran through the Navy Pier area.|
|Made it to Buckingham Fountain!|
|One of the largest fountains in the world!|
|Keepin' on Keepin' on...|
|The steps of the Field Museum|
(self timer photo!)
|Finally time to turn back and return to the hotel|
|Almost home...and I'm tired...|
After a morning of running, we were ready to conquer the Food Show.
Come back next week to see amazing photos and video from the show!
