Taking you along on the Shamrock Shake, err, Shuffle

| No Comments

You know that delightful bit of snow and slop we got vomited on us as March raced out the door this weekend? It was a cold, snowy, wretched reminder that Chicago is a great place to live until the weather happens.

And nobody knows that better than the poor souls who slogged through the Shamrock Shuffle - the annual 8K through Downtown that turned into a Kwik-E-Mart Slushee. Thankfully, we live in an age where nobody goes nowhere without shooting video documentation of their every move, particularly helpful for the non-runners among. See, you can follow along here through that slop with this poor/dedicated guy - and his thousands of friends - without dropping your Doritos or shedding your Snuggie.

Squish, squish, squish ... the sound of victory. And frost-bitten feet. We salute your resilience and question your sanity. And remember, endorphins are not the boss of you next time there's a run through that muck.
