Running doesn't always have to be a hyper-competitive affair. Chicago's recent "Totally Awesome '80s 5k" is a perfect example of a tongue-and-cheek approach to a race that's not about who finishes first. Stride blogger Jessica Stacy (hot pink tights) is training for a triathlon, but finds the time to put some fun in her program. There's plenty of fun runs to participate in this summer, from next week's Disco Dash to the Blacklight Run in August.
