Chicago Air and Water show part 2

I should have known better than to run towards the mayhem of the Air and Water show given my irritable disposition when it comes to pedestrians. The crowds were flocking early to get a seat so there was the usual trouble of people walking along the path clueless that there are people exercising who risk injury trying to duck and weave around them.
This was my first run with Melissa since she came back from Boston and we made 4.01 miles at 39:12 or 9:45 per mile. The weather was perfect at about 75 degrees and a strong breeze pushing us south for the first half and then holding us back for the second half.
