I got in some well needed cycling miles today downtown. It has been nearly two weeks since I have touched my bike due to loss of interest, but I knew I would get over it at some point. I wore my United States Marine Corps t-shirt today which was easily spotted by two veterans that are currently Chicago Police Officers. As I waited at the light, one of them who served in the Coast Guard told me that he liked my shirt which resulted in a conversation. I immediately gave the other who served in the Marine Corps a “OoRah!” before making my turn on Michigan Ave and telling them that I appreciate what they do. With all going on in the world right now I feel that good officers don’t get the appreciation they deserve, so I plan to verbally tell every officer I encounter.
Navy Pier – Chicago Children’s Museum
I dropped out of ‘Futurum Proformance 160’ due to not having enough mileage covered to complete the challenge. After today’s ride, I am sitting at 72 miles cycled and I need 99 miles in order to complete Futurum Proformance 160.

you are my inspiration!
I broke my walk up yesterday because of the heat. I walked 7.1 and then 3 miles in two separate walks and didn’t get as hot!
Nice! The rain kept me from getting out for a run, but luckily I got bike miles in. I have a couple run challenges this upcoming week, so I will be out on foot.
i am working really hard for my virtual 10k in October. I haven’t done a race in more than 20 years.
Are you trying to get a personal best time?
yes right now I am 10 minutes under 2 hours for 10k. I want to keep knocking minutes off that! I would love to finish a 10 k in around 1:45 minutes!
I’d recommend adding ankle weights to your ankles when you walk.
i have an arthritic knee (that used to just be a bad knee) I can’t wear ankle weights!
Better pack the jet pack on your back and fly fly fly : )
i can walk thank you, i don’t need a jet pack.
Plus jet packs are designed by people from Purdue. I don’t ride on things made by people from Purdue! 😉
They can’t catch a break. The protest in Grant Park was crazy.
Yep. I saw that once my scanner notified me. Such a shitty time to be a police officer worldwide. There needs to be some sort of agreement to remove these statues because protestors are gonna keep going after them.
Wow you did good again Thomas. Great photos too.
Thanks. Always amazed at how they turn out. Thankfully I have a platform to share them on : )
