My visit to Swirlgear!

Being a Swirlgear ambassador I could not resist going by the Swirlgear office during my visit to Chicago!  Marisa Flores, Senior Manager was gracious enough to invite me into her world for a real look behind the scenes of the growing business.  One of the interesting things about Chicago is that you cannot tell what […]

As a reward from her running coach, Kathrine entered the Boston Marathon in 1967 even though women were not allowed to officially compete until 1972.  She registered as “K.V.
