Chicago Area Runners Association
Chicago runners say they were cheering last night when the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was captured. And they breathed a collective sigh of relief.
Chicago’s running community is showing its support for Boston and the victims of Monday’s tragic bomb attack. As CBS 2’s Mike Parker reports, it happened Tuesday night.
In the wake of the bombings at the Boston Marathon, the Chicago Area Runners Association was honoring their Boston colleagues with a Unity Run on Tuesday. The run, starting at Foster Avenue beach, was not getting any special security attention, but other sporting events in Chicago over the next few days will.
One of the fastest and easiest ways to get in shape or just drop a few pounds is running. It’s also accessible to just about everyone. Some people take naturally to running and others have to push themselves every step of the way. One way to make running more fun and effective is to join a running club.
There’s growing concern on the Chicago Lakefront Trail, over a man who, runners say, has been punching women along the path.
