Last weekend, I was in Evanston, Illinois, home of my alma mater, the Northwestern Wildcats. So I put out the beacon to all the Chicago area Charity Milers to see if anyone would like to go for a run.
Well, it was a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. And we had a great group of Charity Milers, including:
- Fan favorite, the Foxy Ninja, Jimmy Choi (from episode 5)
- Bill Bucklew, another Team Foxer who is planning to walk across the U.S.
- My long lost cousin, Liz who has some cool stories about my grandfather, the original Gene Gurkoff
- Francisco Robles, my good friend and old sparring partner from my boxing days.
I gotta tell you– we had a blast. And I hope you all enjoy coming along for an easy run with us. #EveryMileMatters.
