Equinox Fitness Clubs has created a unique training program to help those signed up for Fleet Feet Sports Soldier Field 10 Mile train properly. All you have to do is make your way to one of two Equinox locations--Lincoln Park or Highland Park--on Saturday mornings through May 21 to be a part. Sessions begin at 9 a.m., and you're asked to arrive by 8:40 a.m. so everything can start on time. Oh, and you have to bring a photo I.D. But you can leave the money at home--this program is free. Gratis, for nada, zero.
And we're not talking that you just show up for a run and that's it. Equinox's weekly sessions offer cross training through scheduled runs, access to group fitness classes (um, awesome, considering all the variety and hard-core sweating and good sore feelings I've gotten at those), training tips, and question and answer segments. Plus you can use the Equinox facilities and amenities on the day of training--hmm, I sense a little stretch session on the mats or a post-run spin. Well, maybe not for me since I don't even know if I'll be able to run--darn injury woes, again--but those who use this training can benefit from more than the free runs. That's all I'm saying--and that I'm jealous (insert smiley here).
