Instagram-free Lakefront Run


This morning, I completed my longest run since 10/7/2012. It was perfect training weather: Sunny, 35 degrees and a slight wind. The cold wind makes the workout a tad more challenging, but you don't feel that "heat stroke" type nausea that happens often during a long hot run in the summer. With the extra layers of clothing, I don't tend to over-speed, which is easier on my legs and that's the point of a true "long, slow, distance" run.

Anyway, I took some pictures on my run.

#3 in my "Man Encounters Orb" Series entitled "Man Touches Orb!"

Believe it or not, all of these pictures are unfiltered/unaltered pics of the Lakefront Trail this morning.
Total: 13.1 Miles @ 7:51/mile. A Dunkin' Donuts bagel sandwich was my reward after the run!

  3. I am laughing out loud about the man encountering the orb series. This needs to be in the museum of contemporary art!!

    1. I should think about submitting it to the MCA. I could just hang out by the "orb" all day and get pics of people examining it.

  4. Nice job. But I agree with Sara (gingerfoxx)...totally laughing at the orb series!!

    I love taking photos when I run by the lake!! It's not often that I run down there and usually only during the spring/summer.

    1. Now is a great time to be down there. It is relatively uncrowded compared to spring/summer.
