Don't get chicked on the trail

Since it was slightly chilly today I decided to go for a run, plus because I got a great bike ride in on Monday and took a rest day on Tuesday, so a run was well needed. After contemplating what side of Humboldt Park, I would run on, I said the hell with it and drove up to Palmer Square in Logan Square neighborhood which is another peaceful place I love to run and it is shaded!

The weather was nice today, it was 59° but felt very cool.

As for the run, it actually felt good, however, I had to dumb my pace down by three minutes because I had a outfit malfunction which ended up being my capri tights sliding down due to them not having a drawstring. I managed to get through the run, but the earlier part was rough because I literally kept holding on so that they would not fall down. After the adjustments to my pace, I had no more worries of my tights sliding down. And I made it a goal to not get chicked by these two older women on the trail, which added fun because they had a similar pace as me. Probably would have enjoyed passing a younger, fit guy like myself. They were no more than 300 meters behind me, but they pushed me to go further and in the end, I clocked 7-miles to kick off my training for Detroit Marathon. I will take it, but these tights will be worn for walking, not running, hehe.

    • Lol, and it made me consider taking a look at bottoms before I wear them. My summer project will most likely be to weed through them and make some of them pajamas, lol.

      I enjoy sharing stories like this for my workouts because it makes it interesting. I’m working on sharing my inner thoughts because there are times that I have funny things floating in my head that I fail to share. I run into some funny characters while out. I promise to capture some on video this summer.

    • Hehe, I have another writing floating around about almost “getting chicked”. I am sure that I have many more to share in time, since I am starting my training up. : )

      It was very embarrassing, but I’m sure others probably weren’t even paying me any attention.

  1. Lovely photos, i love the nature ones and especially the sculpture…, I also like the outside photo of you and on those two the colors don’t look well except the red top, although they look ok on the outside photo so not sure if it’s the light… ;/ 🙂
