|Kayaking the Chicago River|
Living in downtown Chicago is an exercise in small space management. With scarcely greater than 700ft to most residences, there isn't exactly enough space to keep a 16.5ft touring kayaking in one's apartment. Hence, I store my boat with Kayak Chicago which actually offers reasonable rates for such things. My biggest stressor in moving to Chicago was solved- boat storage.
Another advantage of this is being able to hit the Chicago River after work. When I have a short day like I did, it makes for an unusual way to get some exercise in the afternoon. I pushed off just North of Goose Island

At just an hour and a half paddle, I think the timing was just right for a post-work workout. Wish I could do this every day!
Read. Plan. Get Out There!
