Being that the new job I hold is so much of a relief of stress, I have gotten in my workouts consistently this week. I pack my workout clothing with me the evening before work, then decide where I want to run once I’am off in the morning. It feels so great!
Humboldt Park Lagoon
Humboldt Park Lagoon
For all reading this, Humboldt Park is dominantly a Hispanic neighborhood. What you see here is the entrance to ‘Paseo Boricua‘ beyond the steel Puerto Rican flag. The entire sector is dedicated to Puerto Rican pride and has a walk of fame with the names of many notable Puerto Ricans. And many of the businesses are named after Puerto Rican towns.
It has been a while since I have ran beyond the steel flags, but in the future I will share with you what it looks like.

Before leaving work I weighed myself in to find that I weighed 138! My weight has been up-and-down as of late since I have been running consistently.

damn, I haven’t weighed ~140 since high school…
There were times where I felt that I would balloon up to maybe 160, but it never made it that high. I credit marathon training for keeping it in-between 140 and 150.
can see how that would be a factor
Makes my metabolism go crazy before and after.
that’s going to be a given…
Running in Humboldt Park will definitely prepare you for the Detroit Marathon.
It is really not that bad as people make it out to be, but maybe it is because I don’t present myself as being part of a gang or drug dealer. I love Humboldt Park
Yeah, it’s how they portray every Black or Latino neighborhood on the news.
It kills me to hear them say Little Village is bad. Little Village, and Pilsen are dominantly hispanic neighborhoods, too and they aren’t bad. Might of been bad back in the day, but not so much now.
Running is a good way to stay fit or lose weight. You should start to see the weight drop, if that’s your end goal for running.
Not really my goal it just happens. I’am currently training for Detroit Marathon. Typically it happens when I’am training
