Alice Henry

Normally an outdoor runner only during the mild weather months, she's discovering her new found love of Winter running. The need for social distancing and safety has not discouraged her at all. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, she's highly anticipating her 6th full marathon in October, 2021. In 2002, Alice needed to challenge herself. She trained alone, and successfully finished her 1st Chicago Marathon and was hooked on running. You can catch her outside running 3-5 days a week to stay physically healthy, and to start her work day on a positive note. She loves pacing new runners and has run several distances from 5k's to half marathons, 1 Reebok Ragnar Relay, 4 full marathons and 1 ultramarathon. Being chosen as a 2021 Chicago Athlete Ambassador is a huge honor for Alice to represent and celebrate her hometown.
