As part of the NBC Chicago Fitness Club, myself and teammates Sergio Rojas and Saran Dunmore will join Sports fanatic and extreme fitness athlete, Mike Adamle at 1:30pm on Friday and 1pm on Saturday to give away fun raffle prizes and move people before the run on Sunday.

Look for Mike running on Sunday in his new Vibram Barefoot running shoes.  I just received a pair myself and can honestly say... they are really comfortable!
Good luck to all those running the race and enjoy the cold refreshments at the end of the race... It was my favorite part of the race-the end and the beer.
