When I post my runs on dailymile.com I list the route I ran. These routes may not mean much to non-locals or Chicago based folks who don't use the path (though it seems like a waste to live in Chicago and not use the path, so get out there people!). So today, I took a leisurely bike ride on my Lakefront Path, North route taking pictures along the way. So here are some scenes from a typical run on Lakefront Path, North:
Oak Street Beach. Most of the folks in the water are swimmers training for the Chicago Triathlon.
Still Mile 5.5. I don't see this everyday! Groups of Marines training along the path, carrying "casualties", water, supplies.
I'm now on the return trip, heading back South. Here I am just at the beginning of the North Ave Beach. (Mile 12.5).
