ALA Think Fit 5K Fun Run/Walk

July 1, 2013

The ALA Annual Conference Fun Run was an annual event for 21 years, beginning in 1984 in Dallas. After an eight-year hiatus, the run was resurrected at Midwinter 2012, also in Dallas. 

This year’s 5K Run/Walk was held on the Chicago Lakefront Trail south of McCormick Place. Here are a few photos from the event.












What do librarians do before a race? They read novels and inspect flora, of course.
