So at the beginning of our marathon training, we decided it would be a good idea to convince about fifty people to run around Koreatown to look a pair of missing shoes that weren’t really missing. Here’s my dissertation on the KRC SEARCH PARTY.
A few weeks before the group headed out to Chicago for the marathon, I got a text asking if KRC wanted to run a relay with Nike Chicago the Friday before the race. The prize? $1000. I texted back and asked if we would be running against a bunch of skinny, fast dudes in 3-inch shorts. I got a reply of, “Probably.” Fearing that answer, I accepted on my team’s behalf. The next step was to find a team.
