Another reason to love Chicago

Yesterday I head down to the lakefront to do an easy 2.5 mile jog/walk combo workout.  I’m feeling pretty good as I’m finishing up and decide to pick up the pace a bit.  I approach a group of four Chicago Parks and Recreation workers doing some repair work on a harbor parking lot.

One of the guys is slowly moving their truck backwards towards the running path.  Obviously, I slow down to let him through.  All four guys stop working, the guy in the truck leans out the window and says….”You go ahead hon … you’re working MUCH harder than we are!”

Thanks!…. I think.
