If you've never heard of Chicago Athlete Magazine, let me be the first to say, "welcome you to Chicago, I hope you are enjoying your first day here."
Shops, races, people may come and go, but Chicago Athlete has been the one the constants for over 20 years, sharing news, information, calendars and plenty of other great stuff.
Starting this month and continuing until they get sick of me(which may be next month), you will be able to read my column in Chicago Athlete Magazine. This will be original content that you don't read here online, more in-depth stories and yes, I am sure a few rants. To be a part of this group of writers, artists and athletes is an honor.
As a way of celebrating my new home, the folks at Chicago Athlete Magazine are giving away a free pass to the biggest party of the year, otherwise known as The Bank Of America Shamrock Shuffle. This race sells out every year and is filling up fast. Thanks to the folks at Chicago Athlete Magazine, we are giving you a free pass to the big race.
That's right, you can join 40,000 other runners as they make their way through the 5 mile course in the official kickoff to the race season on April 10th all courtesy of Chicago Athlete Magazine.
All you need to do to enter to win is leave a comment below and we will announce the winner on Friday.
Click here to check out Chicago Athlete online as well as what else in in this months issue. You can read about The Top 25 Midwest
Marathons, How to Drop Those Holiday Pounds, as well as my article on Dave
Kappas. Most of you have heard his voice, some of you may know his
face, that's because Dave is the official voice of dozens of endurance
events around the area. Now in his 20th year of working in Chicago,
Kappas is fighting a kidney disease known as PKD. Despite being down
to 18% kidney use, Kappas is using the strength of the athletes that
surround him to fight the disease, raise money and awareness.
Good luck leave a comment below and thanks to the folks at Chicago Athlete Magazine.
Finally. Congratulations to PoppyK, NKazee and MauraHeizer, you are all winners of new Craft base gear from Turin in Evanston. Congratulations and enjoy training in warmth and comfort.
