I hate exercise, but I like trying to keep my body from falling apart at the joints, so I walk a lot. The cruise from Seven Hills Park to Volunteer Park is one of my favorites—you can people-watch and feel the hum of the city along 15th Avenue, grab a cup of coffee from Victrola, and then move your way along the route as it slides into the curvy paths and wide-open spaces of my favorite city space. Walk around the reservoir if you’re feeling motivated, then pat yourself on the back for getting out of the goddamn house.
