It’s me Ziggy, my bosses just returned from the Rock n Roll Chicago Marathon this week! Marcey and Pete love the Chicago races because they were born and raised in Chicago, maybe that’s why we have so many versions of the Chicago Skyline medal hangers ☺ which are always the best seller at our Chicago races!
Not only was it well attended with 18,000+ runners, but Pete made some great contacts as well! There was a large dance convention going on next door which led to some interesting connections. Pete met a customer that has put together a Hispanic youth running program to steer youth away from gangs and into running. He also met the UIC Flames women’s basketball coach, Regina Miller, who runs every year! Marcey and Pete always talk about how many great people they get to meet while on the road and at a show, it’s their favorite part of the business.
Our sympathies go out to the Rock n Roll Gypsy Runners, particularly Drew Pelletier, for the loss of his Mother. #findyourtribelovethemhard
The weather was perfect for the race, a tad warm but overall perfect. Katherine Switzer was even in attendance, the pioneer of women’s running, who we were honored to make a SportHook for!
The summer months tend to be a bit slower for us, but not this year! We are moving to a bigger warehouse and have been busy busy getting that ready. Stay tuned for more on that, speaking of which, I’ve got some spiders to go take care of for my humans.
Happy Tails, Ziggy Girl
