The weekend of August 24 was the 37th Annual Chicago Triathlon presented by Life Time. While Sunday’s swim portion of the race was cancelled due to high water levels and intense winds, the area’s largest triathlon was still a success. More than 10,000 athletes participated — many first-timers — across the five events: the Life Time Kids Tri Chicago, SuperSprint, Sprint, International and Triple Challenge.

Holly's running career began in high school; after being bummed about not making the volleyball team her sophomore year, she decided to join some of her middle school friends on the cross country team. She also did track in the fall, where the 1600 m race was her niche. Since then, she has run many distance races, and is going for her first marathon at the 2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon this October. She graduated from Illinois State University in May 2016 with a degree in journalism, and is working towards her Master in Arts in New Media and Marketing.
