60,000 steps in Chicago
I can’t tell you exactly why it’s actually named that - Sorry, I suggest you Google it. I honestly wasn’t paying close enough attention because I was getting heavily rained on by sideways drizzles and Lake Michigan splashes.
It was a moist afternoon. (Enjoy that word choice for a second, then move on. 😉)
Being in the city has always enlivened me, whether it be New York or Chicago. When I was in Chicago, I was reminded of a past self and life that was in New York, but in a cleaner, kinder setting, because I was visiting with new knowledge and perspective on life. It was also literal, though, in that Chicago is a lot cleaner and kinder than New York City often is.
Then again, maybe I'm just idealizing a great weekend getaway. It was just what I needed!
I appreciate and enjoy New York and Chicago for different reasons. It was wonderful to get out and explore. I walked many miles there. According to my iPhone, it was approximately a 60,000-step weekend. Needless to say, my calves and feet hurt, but I still plan to go to the gym later this week, because, despite a fun weekend, the work week goes on. We move forward with our routines.
I hope to visit again soon. The pace and promise of the skyline was enough to set my inspiration ablaze.
