I decided to put it to the test and went for a short run last night by attending one of Fleet Feet Chicago's Chicks' Night. I hadn't run in several days, so I was a little nervous and was prepared to walk, if needed. Luckily, everything went very well.
Chicks' Night is pretty awesome. It is a women only fun run that happens every week at each of the Fleet Feet Chicago locations. The Lincoln Square location has Chicks' Night on Wednesdays at 6:30pm. There are also other fun runs that leave from the different Fleet Feet locations, so if you are looking for people to run with, you might want to check out their schedule.
|I really do love my neighborhood.|

Run with some cool women and earn free gear? I'm in!
It was a perfect evening for a run! It was sunny and beautiful, but still comfortably cool. Chicago can really be beautiful sometimes.
I decided to run at least three miles, and then add more if I was still feeling good. I soon fell into a comfortable pace with a few of the other ladies running that night. After three miles, I was still feeling good, with no pain, so a couple of ladies and I went ahead an extra mile to finish four miles for the night.
|These ladies are awesome!|
I love running with Chicks' Night. It is awesome seeing so many women running and being active and supporting each other. These ladies really do inspire me to be better and keep going. I just wish that I was able to run with them more consistently, as I'm only able to run with them about once a month right now, thanks to my weird work schedule.
