Fit-Pic: Oh, What a Beautiful Morning
Is it possible that Chicago's lakefront could look this awesome in October? Apparently so, as I snapped this picture on my bike ride home from the Homecoming 5K. A calm lake, runners on the path, temperatures just warm enough to keep sweat at bay, sunshine with no clouds, and my personal favorite: no crowds. It's interesting how a pristine fall day doesn't elicit the same masses that flock to the lakefront on the first nice spring day. But hey, I'm not complaining. I only wish that my running legs had more in them than a 5K (note to self: do not ride mountain bike with flat tires to race site and do not get three hours of sleep regardless of race distance). With the month we've been having weather-wise, I'll be adding this memory to the vault. My eyes are going to need it in January and February, unless I'm out west skiing.
