There are a few nice tracks in my neighborhood (Andersonville/Ravenswood) but if I want something more scenic, I'll go to the lakefront.
On well-rested and highly motivated days, I can do anywhere between 5-10 miles.
I'm at under an 8-minute mile now, so I'm shooting for 7 and change but without sacrificing endurance for speed.
Only seriously for about the last year and a half. Was applying for officer programs in the military and needed to get in shape. Didn't get those jobs...but did fall in love with running!
More tortoise, less hare. I didn't realize how expensive becoming a runner could be. Nike owns my speedy soul.
