In Chicago visiting family. Despite some rainy weather, it's been a blast and we managed to catch some clear skies for the Chicago Blues Festival in Millennium Park - billed as the world's largest free blues festival.

Lousy weather made for a treadmill run on Saturday, but with a Forest Preserve near the hotel, I could not resist a trail run today, even with muddy conditions. A little sloppy, but not too difficult to navigate and really fun to be surrounded by trees. Cooler weather was a nice bonus too!

    Looks like muddy terrain is your terrain, Mike. Look at your pace! 👍

    Nice run, Mike! I'm always impressed how you are able to fit in a run regardless of the weather, time or location! Love the blues...I bet it was a great concert and event --safe travels home!

    Blues in Chicago - home of the Blues Brothers - how can you beat that? The Preserve run looks inviting - nice find near your hotel.

    OK, one more time. But if I'm going to be carrying all this rain for you, Darrell, I think I'm going to have to start charging freight!
