Many people were evacuated because their streets became flooded. Others had their basements flood, and others had trees fall on their homes or their cars. We have been spared - it is an answered prayer. This is not to say that there is not cleaning up to be done - there are many small to medium sized branches down all over the yard that need to be collected. Then, I can't wait to blog about my crazy runs along Lake Michigan! Here's a preview:
It was weird to travel to Chicago for fun - and not because I planned to run in a half-marathon. Also, it is never easy being the only one getting up early on vacation to run. I had to search my brain for motivators, like:
- The views along Lake Michigan were unbelievably beautiful!
- It was easy to run along the lake because it was flat.
- I've never been to Chicago for fun - only business! So it was my own way to get out and explore Chicago's Lakeshore Area in my running kicks!
These motivators worked for me - but I am always up to hear what other people use to help motivate them to keep up their training while on vacation. Until then ...
