Go Big All Weekend | Mimi Reimers by Dan Fitzgerald

Running needs rockstars too. Mimi Reimers is a Heartbreaker Flyer holding it down in Chicago with our Lakewood Athletics sub-group. She's a former Loyola track star who's fully immersed in Heartbreak world. On the weekend of Friday, 6/3, she was our 3rd year anniversary party bouncer & general party person. On Saturday, she waded through post-party after-effects and that night she broke 5 min in the mile for the first time officially (4:53). Finally, on Sunday, wearing returned/damaged shoes (a "perk"of being around the shop), she ran the first-ever Chicago 13.1 placing 12th overall while stopping to massage her feet and check the blisters "for a couple of minutes." All heart, this one. Hear her telling of the story below and thanks for setting the standard for Heartbreak LIFE, Mimi! (We'll a fresh pair if Vaporflys).
