FIND YOUR FIT.

Events ranging from fun runs to marathons, from casual bike rides to time trials, from youth triathlons to the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final.

Need help stepping into the perfect size? Visit newbalance.com/GetFit and find the Local Run Store nearest you.

2015 has something for every endurance athlete. If you need proof, just flip through this issue of Chicago Athlete Magazine. Events ranging from fun runs to marathons, from casual bike rides to time trials, from youth triathlons to the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Chicago fill this year’s calendar, providing options no matter your skill level or sport. In case you need further proof that Chicago is a great place to be as an endurance athlete, take a look through our extensive list of clubs that swim, bike and run in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. With so many different groups in so many different communities around the area, no athlete has to train alone. Not sure if group training fits your goals or lifestyle? Karen Patterson writes about the benefits of working out with a club on page 82. If you’re on the fence about joining a group, this may help you make up your mind. If the number of clubs and events in the area doesn’t motivate you to get moving, maybe some new gear will help. With an abundance of running, bike and triathlon stores around Chicagoland, you’re never all that far from a local shop that can help you update your wardrobe or upgrade your equipment. Staff members also serve as an invaluable resource for all your sport and gear-related questions to help you get the most out of your training and racing. As always, Chicago Athlete will be here throughout the whole year, bringing you the latest local news, events and happenings. Stay active!

One of the reasons the Pleasant Prairie Triathlon is rated one of the Midwest’s best races is because our course is fast! You should expect great times at our event. Pleasant Prairie is a great area and Prairie Springs Park is amazing. Lake Andrea is a spring-fed, clean inland lake typically as smooth as glass with delightful water temperatures. Our bike and run courses are primarily flat with limited curves. Plus you bike in a beautiful country setting with an inside the park scenic run around Lake Andrea. It’s a great course with a great goodie bag!

the BeNefits of

gRouP tRAiNiNg

By KAReN PAtteRsoN | Photo By Ali eNgiN

“A gRouP cAN helP Push you to PeRfoRm At A higheR level ANd motivAte you to tRAiN hARdeR.”

With the growing popularity of distance running, group training has become a popular option both for those looking to test out the sport and continue their participation. Whether an individual signs up for a beginner’s 5K program or their 25th marathon, group training in endurance sports gives runners a fun, simple and healthy way to increase motivation for the task at hand.

“Training with a similar group of people ensures your workouts are on target. Certain people may be peaking on a day that you’re dragging, making your competitive juices kick in to push yourself through a tough workout.”

“The benefits for group training seem almost infinite,” Ryan Caturan says.

“Getting into a sport can be scary and intimidating,” he says. “‘All these athletes are really fit people,’ someone might say. It’s good to have someone who has the same mindset as you.”

Caturan, a training program coordinator for Fleet Feet Sports and Chicago Endurance Athlete, cites accountability, friendship and encouragement as three of the most positive benefits. “When you train with a group or team, you don’t want to miss days because you’ll want to be out there with them,” he says. “There have been a number of people that we see through CES that met through training and are now the closest of friends.” Group training also can help a runner know when to put forth a little more effort and when to hold back. “A group can help push you to perform at a higher level and motivate you to train harder,” Megan Sullivan, training program manager at the Chicago Area Runners Association, says. “On the other hand, a group run may also keep you disciplined to run at an easier pace. “Overall, it gets you out of your own head, connects you to others and teaches you teamwork and patience, which are both great life lessons.” Seth Kopf, founder and coach at Kopf Running, says that every runner can benefit from giving group training a try. “I recommend group or partner training, especially for beginners to help with accountability and to stay on track with training,” Kopf says. “Even though veteran athletes may be more likely to train on their own, they can still benefit from group running from time to time.

Caturan says beginner’s 5K programs can yield the most benefits, easing new individuals into group training.

Carolyn Gardner of CREW Runs the World agrees, encouraging all runners to experiment to find a group that fits them. “Once most beginners see the camaraderie, they’re encouraged to return,” she said Local runners have many options if they want to try group training. Beyond CARA and CES, many different running clubs operate in the city and suburbs. Social media can also help someone learn more about a club’s dynamic. “Check out a group’s Facebook page and ask questions,” Caturan says. “What do you want to get out of group training?” Sullivan says word-of-mouth can be a great resource, and Kopf listed the Road Runners Club of America website as another place to find groups. Regardless of which club you join, group running benefits each individual no matter how much experience a runner may or may not have. “Knowing that your friends will be there and will push you harder than you could have pushed yourself is incredibly advantageous to training success,” Kopf says. “Why journey alone when you can go with your friends?” Caturan says. “You don’t have to, and group training is absolutely the way to go.” MyChiCagoathlete.CoM

SAUGANASH WELLNESS CENTER

THE PROBLEM Repetitive motions of day-to-day life cause muscles to contract and relax. Over time, these contractions become shorter. As they become shorter, muscles and fascia become chronically contracted, forming knots, congested tissue, and muscle tightness leading to dysfunction, disability and pain.

773.283.4470 773.283.4473, fax info@sauganashwellness.com www.sauganashwellness.com

The health of muscles is directly affected by tightness in the muscles. Blood and lymph volume is drastically reduced in hyper-contracted muscle tissue. Tremendous congestion and inflammation accumulates in the tissue from cellular metabolic wastes, all due to ineffective circulation. As this stagnation progresses, the tissue suffers increasingly destructive pathological changes. DELOS THERAPY Delos Therapy involves applied systematic pressure to the entire length of the muscle to stretch muscular fibrils, leading to elevated vascular and lymphatic circulation, improving the vital health of the affected tissue, eliminating pain and restoring function. HOW WE DIFFER FROM... Physical Therapy Conventional techniques of stretching and strengthening are ineffective for hyper-contracted muscle tissue. Delos Therapy addresses the root cause of the pain by micro-stretching muscles and fascia.

Chiropractic Rather than manipulating bones that may be out of alignment, Delos therapy addresses the muscle tissue, which is the force that is causing the skeletal misalignment in the first place. Massage Compared to Delos, regular massage is a superficial technique that doesn’t optimally address muscular tightness. Even deep tissue and sports massage don’t hold tissue in a stretched position long enough to be fully effective. Conventional Stretching Tight tissue doesn’t stretch, so during conventional stretching, only healthy fibers are stretched. As a result, flexibility often increases, but pain and stiffness don’t diminish. CONDITIONS TREATED BY DELOS • Headaches/migraines • Back/neck pain • Shoulder pain • Arthritis • Sciatica • IT band syndrome • Carpal tunnel syndrome • Tennis/golfer’s elbow • Heel spurs • Hip pain • Plantar fasciitis • Tendonitis • TMJ • Bursitis • Fibromyalgia • Knee pain • Shin splints BENEFITS OF DELOS • Prevention of surgeries • Reduced rehabilitation time • Restored function • Increased range of motion

• Elimination of pain symptoms • Reduced treatment costs • Reduced stiffness

Wilson Running Track

neWeSt trAInIng AddItIon to LInCoLn PArk

Q Welcome to the lakefront. How has your experience in Chicago been so far? A It’s been great! I’ve felt welcomed and accepted by a variety of people in the Chicago athletic and fitness community. I felt like a part of the community from day one – no one treated me like the new kid they weren’t quite sure what to do with, and I appreciate that. Q Were you concerned that there might be some skepticism? A Not particularly. I didn’t exactly encroach on anyone’s territory, after all. My closest “competitor” (if you could even call it a competitor – I prefer to view us as complementary partners, and I’m sure it would say the same if you asked), at least in terms of Lakefront Trail accessibility, is the track down by 94

AnnuAl EvEnt GuidE 2015

MyChiCagoathlete.CoM

Northwestern at Chicago and Lake Shore Drive at Lake Shore Park. That’s over five miles away from me up here by Wilson. If someone from Edgewater, Uptown or even Lakeview wants to do track work, they probably don’t want to tack an additional 10 miles onto that workout. I think my location makes me a convenient option for north siders, and I didn’t expect too many people to protest – unless they has used the location of the Lake Shore Park track as an excuse to not do track work! I guess I’ve ruined that for them [laughs]. Q How do you envision yourself contributing to the local fitness community? A I think I have a lot to offer. As an eight-lane track, there’s more than enough room for everyone, whether you want to walk laps or run 800s. I surround a

beautiful new turf field that serves field-sport players of all ages. And of course, if some champ wants to run repeats mixed with hill work: well, I don’t think anyone else can offer a better arrangement than I do. Q Is there anything else you think people should know about you? A I’d love to be a gathering place for people of all walks of life, regardless of how seriously they take their fitness. I hope that people will always see me as a welcoming environment, and that no one will lay claim to me—thinking of me as “their” track, or turning me into a place of intimidation. Respect the rules of the track: run or walk in the same direction as everyone else, be careful when crossing lanes, that sort of thing. And please, stop by and visit any time! I’d love to meet you.
