Recovery miles are meant for taking your time and enjoying the ride. This time, we took a lap around Whitnall Park to enjoy the crisp fall air and the beautiful – still green – park sights.

Here are a few things we saw:

Seen on the Run – Milwaukee Lakefront Edition

Although we won’t make it a habit to take pics every few minutes in the manner of a tourist, some runs are just too beautiful not to document. Here are a few things we recently saw along one of our favorite Lakefront routes:
