Making A Run For It March 27, 2007

Imagine stepping out of your hotel at the ACS meeting, expecting to find the shuttle bus to the convention center waiting to whisk you away, and instead finding that the street has been taken over by runners—hundreds, even thousands, of them—running past the hotel. Well, that’s what I encountered on Sunday morning as I set off for the McCormick Place convention center.

Fortunately, I had my camera with me, and I started shooting. Even though I wasn’t running myself, I found it exhilarating. The runners kept on coming and coming. At first, I thought this was one of those “fun runs” that have been held at ACS meetings in the past. But soon it became clear that there were far too many runners for them to be chemists at the meeting.

I later found out that this was something called the LaSalle Bank Shamrock Shuffle 8K, which had registered some 30,000 participants. What a glorious way to start the outdoor running season!
