We Got A Story To Tell

CHICAGO IS FOR RUNNERS - JOSHUA & VERONICA

 
On our very first date, Veronica told me she was in training for a half-marathon. As a person who previously ran for leisure or as a form of stress relief, I couldn’t fathom the dedication and strength it might take to train for a long race. Less than two months later, in a remote corner of Michigan, we ran 12 miles together, to and from cocktails at the Journeyman Distillery. Then, in October, we both crossed the finish line at our first Chicago Marathon. Today, we plan our weeks around our training schedules, help one another get Tiger Balm into all those hard-to-reach places, and in general, keep ourselves on track with the mutual mantra: “One foot in front of the other.
