#RunningTo Week 16 in Review: Milwaukee, Chicago, Davenport

Oh man. The good times just keep rolling. From Minneapolis to Milwaukee to Chicago, I’m pretty sure it was the most epic 1-2-3 punch of this #RunningTo road trip. Three absolutely gorgeous Midwest cities in a row. I’m not sure what those cities are like during wintertime, but gosh this late summer looksie was phenomenal.

After spending a solid week in Milwaukee, it was fun to return to Chicago and explore that city in greater depth. From Wrigley Field (!) to the epic lakefront, I had a fantastic time in Chi Town.

Check out some of my favorite moments from the wandering week that was!

Ever taken a #BeanSelfie in Chicago? Did you know the Midwest was so beautiful in the summer? Any idea what’s it like in wintertime?
