Now that the weather is getting warmer (kinda...sorta...) I wanted to share one of my go-to routes for a run or walk with Rooney. This one is a little over 4 miles and is in the Lincoln Park section of the Chicago Lakefront Trail, but there are so many ways to alter this route and make it shorter or longer.
I used Map My Run to track distance and to show you guys the route I used.
- I started near Fullerton and Clark, then walked North to towards Diversey around the North Pond Sanctuary.
- Then I looped back going south along the path that parallels Cannon Drive and followed it under Fullerton and kept going south on the path that is next to the Lincoln Park Zoo.
- When I got down to North & LaSalle, I crossed over Lake Shore Drive and ran along the lake going north towards Fullerton again.
It was a beautiful day and Rooney was all about the lake so we stopped a couple of times to play and cool off. That whole area is so pretty and everyone was out enjoying it. There's something so peaceful about running by the lake - I don't need music or anything, I just zone out and enjoy it.
