After working from home for two and a half years I’m finally back to commuting to downtown Chicago thanks to the acquisition of Voce by Porter Novelli almost two months ago. PN has an office on North Michigan Ave. that I’m able to work from, though I still work from home occasionally as situations warrant.

But what I’m most excited about is that after doing it for a couple weeks now I’m getting back to my old walking pace, covering the 1.5 miles between Union Station and the office in 15 minutes. That’s what I’ve been aiming for and it’s a decent workout.

It’s the little victories I try to hang on to.
