On saturday I woke at a pretty early (central) time since I was still on east coast time. So I sat around for a while, read my book while I waited for the sun to rise so I could do my shakeout run. I was super excited to go and explore the city a bit! Luckily our hotel was only about a mile away from the start line so I was able to run to Grant Park to see where I needed to go on Sunday. Our hotel was in the financial district, so it was in a pretty quiet part of town for a Saturday morning.
Such a nice sunrise shot of some beautiful buildings along Michigan Ave.
Tomorrow i’ll fill you in on a few tourists things I did before the race!
