ain't no half steppin'

Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but because they want to live life to the fullest.
~ Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running

Running the Chicago Marathon has become an annual tradition for me… It’s one of my favorite races because of the spectacular course, I mean, what’s not to like about taking in one of the most beautiful cities in the world by foot? (Not to mention, it’s a flat course.) You can really feel the energy from the crowd in every neighborhood: from The Loop and Boystown, to Chinatown and The Southside. In addition to being a fun run, I also look forward to the marathon’s creative campaign. Last year, Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson aka Struggle Inc. handled all the graphic design elements surrounding Nike’s involvement in the 2012 Chicago Marathon. It was probably one of the most memorable campaigns I can remember… I wonder what they got in store for 2013?
