Chicago - Part Three

And now for some photos of anything but running!

Monday morning Marie and I headed off to Willis Tower to do some sight seeing before catching our planes home on Tuesday morning. In no particular order, here are some of the fabulous things we experienced:

Willis Tower
Navy Pier
D4 Irish Pub & Cafe
Magnificent Mile
Icon Movie Theater
Millennium Park

In total we ended up walking 13+ miles. I'd like to think it helped relieve any soreness I had, but I was definitely pooped at the end of the day.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the day. 


Considering my fear of heights, I'm pretty proud that I was able to stand in that tiny glass box. Talk about fear, let me tell you! I felt that any tiny step I took was going to bring the whole place down. Turns out they were totally secure and I'm just a big scardeycat. 

And that's it! 

I had such a great time in Chicago and cannot wait to get back there to experience more of the neighborhoods and DEEP DISH PIZZA (I still can't believe I didn't have any while I was there). One thing that really stuck out to me about this great city was the number of skyscrapers! I couldn't believe how many big. buildings. there were everywhere! It was also fitting that this song came on during the first mile of the race.

Until next time, Chicago.
