Cheer Greg of W. Crossings on in the Bucktown 5K!
Greg, who owns W. Grocer along with his brother, Paul, is not sure why he began to run, but six months ago he woke up one morning and decided that he needed to do it.
And he hasn't stopped since. Last month he reached his personal best in the Rock and Roll 10K marathon, with a time of 1:37.
In March, he ran in the 5K Zoo in the Park at Lincoln Park Zoo. "I enjoyed seeing all of the animals while I was running," he said, adding that he also likes the camaraderie that is formed with the other runners.
As for what he thinks about when he's running, Greg says, "Not dying."
Greg's favorite places to run are the Lake Shore path and forest preserves in the suburbs.
The Bucktown 5K is this Sunday at 8:30AM.
