Finishing a marathon is a major accomplishment for elite athletes and casual runners, but you don’t have to put your feet on the pavement to access a realistic marathon experience. Life Fitness and the RunSocial app teamed up to provide an interactive running experience for attendees of the Abbott Health & Fitness Expo, an event at the McCormick Place Convention Center leading up to the 2015 Chicago Marathon last weekend.

I just finished the 5K Race to Wrigley Field in Chicago. Who did I high-five at the finish? Not my best friend or little brother, but Jake, the IT analyst who sits two cubes away from mine. We’re part of the Life Fitness Running Club, which includes 70 other members out of our Chicago area offices.
The club meets on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays at noon for runs around the Schiller Park/Franklin Park, Ill. neighborhood as well as Wednesday evenings, and Thursday mornings. To maintain membership we must meet with the club at least 3 times a month, but many of our members meet more frequently and our grove runs range anywhere from 2 to 6 miles long as a group.
