TRI IT!

It wouldn't be August without the world's largest triathlon, a designation we sought out in 2006 and landed in 2007 with the Guinness Book of World Records. This year, the weekend of August 28 and 29 brings the Life Time Fitness Chicago Triathlon! It's bigger and better than ever with 8700 athletes enjoying the best lakefront on the continent. If you're not participating, come join the 500,000 folks who love to spectate. The Fleet Feet SuperSprint Triathlon and the Chicago Kids Triathlon presented by McDonald's take place on Foster Beach on Saturday a.m., followed by the Sprint Distance and International Distance races of the Life Time Fitness Chicago Triathlon on Sunday a.m. Some of my favorites...Paralympian Melissa Stockwell and Bob Oury (he's raced in every Chi Tri--this will be his 28th). I've done about 15 of them (done the PR that is, but we definitely do the distance. Tri and make it out! www.chicagotriathlon.com
