I joined Frontrunners/Chicago in December 2014. I had recently moved to Chicago and discovered a love of running. I joined the club to provide incentive to run during those cold, dark winter months and to make new friends. Four years later, the club has provided me with both those things and a whole lot more.

Running with Frontrunners is a big part of my journey since I came out in 2016, living a positive, healthy lifestyle, feeling part of a community and making some great friends along the way.

Running is how I challenge myself, physically and mentally. It is also one of my social circles, a way to connect with people who have similar interests. The fact that Frontrunners is an LGBTA running club was so important to me since I came to the club shortly after coming out. I really appreciated the knowledge that I was among other members of the community and allies.
