Chicago Running Bloggers Beer Run Pictures

Today was the first annual Chicago Running Bloggers Beer Run and it was a blast. I got to meet many other bloggers for the first time and enjoy a run and a brisk hour in the cold wind talking to Maureen. That was followed up by some delicious Half Acre beer.  I ran 2.5 miles on my ankle and although is still not quite perfect, but I am glad that I did the run portion of the Beer Run. I think I'll swim tomorrow and reassess where the ankle is on Monday. No need to stress about it until then...

Anyway, it's getting late, so I'm just gonna post the pics I took. Feel free to repost!



























We should do this again soon!

    1. Yes, it was a great time. Nothing like having 3 beers in an hour after a run at 11 am! :-)

    1. Yes, that would be great if you could hang out longer next time. My ankle is still the same, which is a good thing. I will see how it feels tomorrow, and maybe venture another very short run!

  9. Looked like a fun event! Wish I could have joined as I love running and craft brews but I was out on the lakefront running a lot in the cold. Hopefully next time I'll be able to go.


    Hope your ankle is getting better!
