Body n' Sole Sports

Body n' Sole Sports (in Savoy, IL just south of Champaign-Urbana) is the best running store in town. OK, they are the only running store in town, but they would still be the best even if we had 20 stores in central Illinois!  They have been sponsors of the Clinton Lake ultra from the beginning and have always supported running in the community.  If it weren't for Jed and Mike at Body n' Sole, the local race scene would be slim pickings.  They sponsor, support, and direct numerous races.  Plus, they are the only place you can get genuine advice on running...and the shoes & apparel to support it.  They've looked at my minimalist shoes with some concern, especially since I run trail ultramarathons, but they are always happy to stock (or special order) my racing flats.  Good guys.

I mention Body n' Sole because they are sponsors of Clinton Lake, but also because the early packet pick-up is at their store on Friday, March 26 from 3-6pm.  Come by and grab your race packet, chat with me, buy some last-minute supplies, and get the scoop on the latest trail conditions.  Make sure you tell the staff "thank you" for sponsoring the race.  If it weren't for fine businesses like Body n' Sole, running and racing would suffer.  Here is their address and contact information:

NINE DAYS TO THE RACE!  Current weather forecast is sunny with a high of 45.  Sweet.
