Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago – Part 1: The Expo

This year they have already hosted […]

I went streaking this summer..
After starting and quickly stopping 2 other run streaks last year, I’m happy to say that my mom and I completed the 2015 Runner’s World Summer Run Streak! Some days it was easy, some days it was hard, but overall I’m happy that I did it! Source I think that Runner’s World holds a run […]
