It's hard not to be horrified and saddened by events like this Monday, April 15th at the Boston Marathon. It's hard not to give into the pain and cry your eyes out. And as runners, it's hard not to do something.
So let's do something, Chicago.
Let's honor our fellow runners in Boston by raising funds and running in their honor.
Step 1: Donate $10 or $26 or what you can to the Red Cross.
Step 2: Get some friends together and Run on Monday April 22**
It's simple. It's symbolic. Let's run and show our support for Boston.
**We are organizing a very unofficial run at the Lakefront Trail at Monroe at 5:30pm Monday, but we encourage you to gather some friends and run where/when you can on Monday.
