14 Miles and A Stop at Trader Joe's

Ran 14 Miles to just before Navy Pier and back. On the return trip, about a mile and a half from home, I stopped off at Trader Joe's.  There, I bought some groceries and then ran home with them.  I have realized it is not easy running with additional weight that you are not used to.   This is especially true when you are carrying a gallon of yogurt!  Anyway, took some pics:



  1. What a beautiful run!

    One time I ran to the grocery store to buy some avocados. That was kind of fun (running back with them). I just carried the bag in my hand, instead of using a backpack.

    1. Thanks, it was beautiful! :-) I also ran carrying my groceries yesterday, although I did stuff a few items in my jacket pockets. I didn't want to have to wear a backpack for my entire run just to use it for the last mile and a half. I purposely took side streets so I would not run into anyone I knew, 'cause I knew I probably looked goofy running with groceries!
