Chicago: RnR Expo and Chick's Night at Fleet Feet

This past week I was in Chicago. First I had two days at the Chicago Rock n Roll Expo with Oiselle rep: super energized, snack slinging Cindi. We had so much fun meeting women runners, some who'd already found Oiselle and some who fell in love that day (after trying shorts on usually).

Then Tuesday night (8/17) I hosted Chick's Night at Fleet Feet Chicago in the name of Oiselle. Wow! What a great group! They have between 40 and 50 gals every week. All training for this and that, all excited to be a part of the running community in Chicago by volunteering at water stops or cheering. It was really inspiring to see the community that running in Chicago has built. Really inspiring. Running is bigger than our individual PRs it's really about supporting each other. I think I see a water stop in my future...

Anyway, we raffled off some prizes after running. And enjoyed drinks and snacks. I had so much fun in Chicago, every time I visit I find a new reason to love it.
