Memorial Day weekend and my trip to Chicago may have brought back that loving feeling. Maybe all this time I had just, in the wise words of Austin Powers, "lost my mojo," and needed a run on a familiar, favorite route to get my running mojo back.

|On second thought, maybe freeze framing the video taken on my ipod while still moving isn't the best...but you, ahem...get the picture ;-)|
Special note for fellow Trotters: there are some great options for pit stops on this route. The Lincoln Park Zoo, Castaways @ North Avenue Beach and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum to name a few.
The weekend's high 90 degree temps weren't very appealing to me, so I only snuck in a Friday evening run before my other travel-mates had arrived for a glutinous weekend of fun, but I did manage to do my new Tracy Anderson Method ("TAM") dvd on both Saturday and Sunday while the rest of the gang was resting. All in, the weekend gave me the kick start I needed to get back on the fitness/running/positive attitude band wagon.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend to everyone! Tell me: how did you spend your weekend? Also, to pull a page out of Meghan's book - Where is your favorite place in the world to run?
