If biking around a food festival isn't your idea of a killer workout (no judgement if it is), here's another option for you. On Your Mark Coaching & Training has partnered up with Live Grit (the sporty West Loop store) to create a Try It for Fun Chicago Triathalon Training Group. The free group truly is all about fun, with workouts planned around happy hours and a laid-back attitude (you can even miss meets. No big deal.) The program started June 28 but you can still sign up, or learn more, by emailing here. [Racked Inbox]
