The workout

After putting together a training plan last night for Rock n Roll Chicago Half Marathon, I felt I just had to get in a run today to kick it off. Not a bad schedule.

As of late, Disturbed – Serpentine has been a major influence on my motivation to workout. Half the battle is over once I am outside the door because there is no turning back from there. It is so easy to get comfortable and put the run off for another day, especially with temperatures above 80°.



Des Plaines River


My third encounter with a deer on the Des Plaines River Trail. This one eventually took off running. 

Humidity kicked my butt today, so I took it easy. My encounters with mountain bikers gave me the opportunity to take short breaks.
