Here, she documents one of her late afternoon runs on Chicago&#39;s West Side.</p><p>&quot;In every town and every city I&#39;ve ever lived in, I&#39;ve ran,&quot; she says. &quot;I think it&#39;s a wonderful way to get to know the area and the people and it takes me down a lot of unexpected side streets and roads. It shows me a lot of beautiful and, sometimes, sad things that I wouldn&#39;t have necessarily seen otherwise.&quot;</p><p>You can read Katie&#39;s personal blog, including a post called <a href="http://inmyspiralringnotebook.blogspot.com/2013/04/why-i-run.html" target="_blank">Why I Run,</a>&nbsp;<a href="http://inmyspiralringnotebook.blogspot.com/" target="_blank">right here</a>.&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/KycOUPigWDU?rel=0" width="640"></iframe></p><p><strong>More from the What I See project</strong></p><p><a href="http://www.wbez.org/news/culture/what-i-see-dmitry-samarov-107924" target="_blank">Painting, sketching and coffee-roasting with Dmitry Samarov</a></p><p><a href="http://www.wbez.org/sections/lifestyle/what-i-see-trainers-day-shedd-aquarium-107766" target="_blank">A trainer&#39;s day at the Shedd Aquarium with&nbsp;Jessica Whiton</a></p><p><a href="http://www.wbez.org/what-i-see-bike-bee-107686" target="_blank">Bike-a-Bee with Jana Kinsman</a></p><p><a href="http://www.wbez.org/news/culture/what-i-see-early-morning-edition-107362" target="_blank">Early Morning Edition with Lauren Chooljian</a></p><p><em>Show us what your Chicago looks like!
