Universal Sole Four Mile Classic Is Back (Discount Code Included)

Last year the Universal Sole Four Mile Classic took place on an incredibly windy day in Dusable Harbor. A day so windy that one of the covered tents from the basecamp got blown straight into the lake. It may have been windy but it was still a great race with an even better post-race party (seriously, all-you-can-drink 312). Well, that race is coming back for another go-round, but this time it's moving farther north to Montrose Harbor - where the first official Burgers and Beer 5K was hosted (also by Universal Sole).

The press release says that runners can expect "the usual USOLE perks (swag, beer, prizes and a great party)" along with a "flat, fast 4 mile run along the northern stretch of the Lakefront Path." And they also have an post-race party planned.

This one will be on the roof top of Lakeshore Sport & Fitness in Lincoln Park where they'll host a "killer raffle" with Goose Island beer and food.

I can't miss the promise of a weekday evening run in the spring so I was sold from the start, but if you're thinking of registering (it's only $30!) you can do so here:

And the discount code LG5 is good for $5 off registration, making the race only $25!!!

  1. I was hoping I'd be able to run this race this year, but alas I'm out of town. Have fun out there for me!

Chicagoland's First Annual February Fool's Goal Half Marathon/Debacle Completed!

If you were outside running yesterday, or even if you were just sitting inside looking out the window, you are probably aware that yesterday was a terrible weather day. All day. The temperature stayed between 34 and 40 with freezing rain falling on and off throughout the day.

But that didn't stop a trio of foolish runners from Chicago from completing the inaugural running of Chicago's newest half marathon:

The Five Coolest Things About the New Nike Running Bucktown

Until only a few years ago - and maybe even until last year - I didn't consider Nike a "running" brand. I knew that they had running stuff and that I could get all the running gear I needed at a Nike store, but it seemed like a weird decision to go shopping at a "sports" store when there are so many great "running" stores tailored specifically for runners. But over the last few years Nike has been working towards repositioning themselves within the running market, and it seems to be paying off.

Tomorrow morning (October 5th, 2013) Nike will open its 1st Nike Running store in Chicago (and 8th in the US) at 1640 North Damen in Bucktown. Keep in mind that a Nike Running store is different from a Nike store because, as the title suggests, it's just about running. Last night I had a chance to preview the store and check it out before their official opening this weekend. And I have to say I'm pretty impressed. I know, I know, the point of a store p…

Life of Pi: The Pi Day Pi K Returns to Fleet Feet Stores Across Chicago

I have run a grand total of ONE time since crossing the finish line of the Chicago Marathon in October of last year. I know, I know, I'm disgusted with me too.

So when I got Fleet Feet's notice about the Pi Day "Pi K" Fun Run this coming Monday evening (3.14 - PI DAY, get it?) it seemed like a pretty solid way to get back out on the running trail without getting myself up super early or registering for a timed race where I would embarrass myself. Also, my wife and I ran this race back in 2014 and had a great time.

Plus, after an article I wrote for the Tribune about xkcd creator and all-around baller Randall Munroe speaking in Chicago at an Illinois Science Council (ISC) event, I know a little more about the organization behind the Pi Day Pi K and their mission.

Quick excerpt from the Trib article:
Founded in 2006 by nonscientist Monica Metzler (who also serves as executive director), the ISC was created to help engage adults in science and technology "with a…
