Hello Chicago BALG! My name is Kim McEvilly. I’m currently a junior at DePaul University studying public health and I’m ecstatic to be leading Chicago’s BALG!

I have been a runner for about 6 years now - I first started as a way to help me lose 70 pounds in high school, but it turns out running is actually kinda fun?? So here I am 6 years, 3 half marathons and one full later!

I wanted to start a BALG in Chicago because I wanted to create a space for womxn to join forces and support each other as we chase our goals, whether that’s running your first mile or running your 100th marathon. Throughout my fitness journey I’ve realized just how powerful having a strong community can be in helping you along the way as you redefine your limits, and I CANNOT wait to see what we all accomplish together! Let’s make our impossible possible!
