OAK BROOK, Ill. -- Today I wanted to go back to the old golf course route that I used to do on my lunch breaks about a decade ago. It's a nice route, since it is about 3/4 on that soft gray particle stone. The rest is paved.
It brings you past the golf course and McDonald's headquarters. You pass roads like Ronald Lane and Kroc Road. No joke.
I used to like it since the park district, which is also along the route, would give you free entrance if your company was in the area. I think that was courtesy of the ginormous fast food chain.
I think I ran it faster than I used to a decade ago. My legs hurt a little bit but I was happy that I was able to make good time.
