Yesterday, on my first run to the lakefront since my Chicago Marathon training, I came upon an upside down car on Clark St. (just outside of Graceland Cemetery). Luckily, I had my camera to document the tow truck driver trying to flip it back over. The tow truck guy got the car flipped right-side-up in a matter of a few minutes.

After witnessing that feat, I continued down to the lakefront and there I enjoyed the absence of the masses that were filling the trail just four short weeks ago.
|The Lakefront Trail post marathon. Ahh, sweet solitude.|
|The winds were whipping and so was the surf|
|Still quite empty|
|Okay, there were a few other people on the Trail, but not a big deal!|

I got in 10 miles, which is my longest run in since the marathon three weeks ago. My pace was slow, but it was a good workout with the wind. The rest of this week will be all shorter runs and speedwork in preparation for the Hot Chocolate 15k next Sunday.
