Getting back in the groove…

I’ve just returned from a 10 day Asian trip.  I’m jet lagged, but I spent an hour walking 4.2 miles along Chicago’s lakefront – gotta take advantage of the brief, but gorgeous Chicago summer.  Plus, being in the sun at midday should help my body clock re-synchronize better.

I saw people working out in the park, doing pull ups, dips, etc.  I stopped to do some step-ups, as well.  I was inspired by folks I saw in the park, and an article the other day in the NY Times about Charlie Gasparino, a senior correspondent for Fox Business Network, who:

chooses to shape up by using the urban landscape. “Exercising outside in the city is interesting, free and effective,” he said.
