2007 Chicago Marathon
Nineteen friends of Luggage Pros are heading to Chicago this weekend to run in the 30th Chicago Marathon! The group includes 13 women and 6 men, mostly from the Minneapolis area, with one participant from Michigan. Dan, from Cadillac, Michigan, is Luggage Pro's co-owner Julie Wiens' brother. This is their first marathon run together.
Chicago's 26.2 miles is one of the fastest marathon courses, and some members of the group are hoping to run the times required for the prestigious Boston Marathon next spring. A few lucky members of the group are already pre-qualified for Boston, and are running in Chicago for fun!
Luggage Pros is sponsoring our runners with shirts featuring bright blue Luggage Pros logos on the back, and each runner's own name on the front so everyone can cheer them on by name. Check out the matching electric blue shorts in this pre-training photo.
If you are in Chicago this weekend, cheer on the Luggage Pros runners! We wish you all the best!
