BOARDING SCHOOL

Peg Stierwalt grew up surrounded by cornfields, not water. But she's become passionate about the water sports of stand-up paddleboarding and paddleboard yoga.

The Tolono woman first tried stand-up paddleboarding in February 2015 while visiting friends in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. They paddled on canals in the area. "It was a very fun Florida thing to do," Stierwalt said.

Come along for the ride

Lorrie Pearson started bike commuting 10 years ago, on Bike to Work Day. She was living in the Washington, D.C., area at the time, and she worked for an organization that was helping plan Bike to Work activities.

"We were encouraged to participate. I thought, if I can do this one day, I can do it again," Pearson said.

These are the folks who make the race RUN

Longtime runner Bill Thornhill looks forward to the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon every year, even though he's never run the race. Thornhill has been a course volunteer since the first year of the marathon, when he was hoping the new event would be a success.
