I currently am employed with a wonderful non-profit organization called Chicago Run. Chicago Run works to promote health and wellness across Chicago through the implementation of youth running programs. We are currently located in 44 Chicago Public Schools. My job as a Chicago Run Coach is to work as a liaison between our company and the schools that we serve as well as coach and mentor the children that I work with. I initially decided to join this great program because it matched my current skill set as a former college athlete and it also gave me the opportunity to give back to my city in some capacity. My tenure with Chicago Run thus far has been filled with its share of ups and downs. I’ll start with the downs.
