Made it to Chicago last night. I'm staying in a nice apartment in the West Garfield area which I'm renting through AirBnB. It's inner city, but the place is nice and walking distance to the Green Line rail which will take me anywhere in the city.
Started off running in the dark and just around the corner found a highschool with a very modern track. So, I decided to get my miles in there. Ran them at an 8:55 pace. Just as I finished my final lap, one of the teachers came out to let me know the track is only open outside of school hours. So, good timing. Found out the gate opens at 6am and school starts at 8am, so I'll be back tomorrow and Saturday for my final runs.
