I did my long run on a windy, wavy day down on the Lakefront Trail. I ran to Navy Pier and back. At about mile 13 of 16, I spotted Gingerfoxxx and her running group up ahead of me. As I neared her group, I took out my camera and said, "Gingerfoxxx" and she said turned around and said "hi." Instead of us both slowing down to take a picture of this meeting of two Chicago Running Bloggers, I did a self portrait of us while we were still running:

Anyway, the waves were really crashing on the Lakefront Trail this morning, almost taking out some runners:
The kids (and adults) were having fun in the surf!
|The lake waves were so big that you may have mistaken parts of it for an ocean!|
|This dog looked like he really wanted to play in the surf too!|

So I am finished with 2 of my 3 long runs! Total was 16 miles @ 8:13/mile
