What I See: Katie Prout

Katie Prout is a writer, runner and storyteller living in Humboldt Park. Here, she documents one of her late afternoon runs on Chicago's West Side.

"In every town and every city I've ever lived in, I've ran," she says. "I think it'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't have necessarily seen otherwise."

You can read Katie's personal blog, including a post called Why I Run, right here
