This past weekend, the WhereYouShop promotional team set up camp at the Fitness for America Sports Festival in Hoffman Estates. The health expo included an array of races, from 100-meter dashes for kids to a full marathon for inline skaters.
I’ve never skated competitively, but after hearing that WhereYouShop was going to be at this event, I decided to give it a go.
Sunday morning was rainy, windy and stormy, but our faithful WhereYouShop team persevered. As I raced past their booth in the pouring rain, there they were, cheering on the participants.
I was happy to show my solidarity and compete in the race. And after getting a taste of inline racing, I can’t wait until the next one comes to town (I’m in if you are, street team).
Thanks to everyone who came out and endured the stormy weather, and kudos to all the participants!
Just before the race, I pose for a quick picture.
The 10K participants get ready to start the race.

I made it!
