We all know Chicago is a pedestrian city…give it up, drivers, it is. Partially due to the beautiful weather, half due to office-related frustration and 1/4 due to the stir crazy build-up from winter, lately I’ve abandoned the gym in favor of the Urban Hike.
- The Urban Hike essentially works like this: I high-tail it out of work as fast as humanly possible.
- I take the redline home, tap-tap-tapping my foot impatiently the whole time.
- I march home from the el and the second I walk in the door, remove work shoes/clothes, remove make-up (yes, Laura, that’s actually true) and don my new yoga pants and trusty Cubs baseball hat.
- Walk. Anywhere, everywhere; places I love and places I haven’t been. Just walk.
