Enjoy Two Chicago Favorites in One Visit
3 Greens Market is part coffee shop, part food buffet, and part cafe serving burgers from a favorite Chicago spot. You can dine outside or inside at traditional tables or choose a more relaxed seat on a large sofa or armchair. It’s a casual but nice place, and it’s near the kayaking outfitter I recommended. It offers a way to enjoy two other Chicago favorite’s in one visit and without the wait: juicy burgers from Au Cheval and doughnuts from the Doughnut Vault.
I have been running since the first grade. Running is still my BFF! The 2018 Chicago Marathon was my 100th marathon and my 24th time running Chicago. (And during my first one, I thought, “Never again.” After I finished, I changed my tune to, “What else can I do?”) Since then, I’ve competed in marathons all over the world and I’m a huge proponent of racecations. I believe the best way to see another city is on your feet. I most recently published my first book, “Me, You & 26.2: Coach Denise’s Guide to Get You To Your First Marathon.” The book echoes what I tell my coaching clients, whether I’ve been helping them get to their first mile or their first 100 miler.
