Enjoying the taper

The best part about a taper is when you get a small portion of your life back allowing you to enjoy life like a normal person.


Yesterday I took a wonderfully deserved extra rest day and had a date with my city.


The sun was shining, there was a light breeze in the air, and light seemed to glimmer off of everything that is uniquely urban.










Maybe I hate tourists crowding up my city, but I sure as heck like being one.

  6. Great photos... i've been to Chicago as a kid (6th grade) and look forward to seeing the sites one day. I work in SF and encounter tourists all the time. I guess it's the price we pay for living in such beautiful cities.

  12. What a great city you have to play in! Beautiful pics. Living near DC, I am not a fan of tourists,either, but I do like playing one as well. Enjoy the rest of your rest!

  13. Beautiful pix. I can't wait to be a tourist in Chicago - I have only been there on business.

    I hate tourists in NYC - they drive me crazy trying to get to places for work.
