My heart is that much harder now.

Distance: 3.5 miles
Duration: 26:57
Avg. Pace: 7:42
Route: Chicago Riverwalk

Two nights at the Westin, the wife got a terrific rate and we are dedicated to doing extremely touristy Chicago things; yesterday we took the architecture boat tour, had deep dish and walked Navy Pier (you can totally skip Navy Pier.)

On Sunday night we saw The Neo-Futurists.

Tried to engage the girl to join me, but we have had late nights and she begged off. Perhaps tomorrow.
Temperature: 61
Climate: sunny & cool
Mood: not bad

Love the organized chaos of an urban run on a designated path. People are walking to work, also running and walking (no wheels permitted) and everyone – by and large – stay to the right and passes on the left.

A city wakes on a weekday with traffic on the streets (above) and city workers cleaning the pavement, making repairs. There are also the boat horns, that is a nice touch. I see runners in downtown Cleveland, there are more and more of them, but nothing like the scale and density of a city like this.

Cities are about density. Utopia requires people.
