The short version: If it gets you active, chances are we're writing about it at Fit-Ink. Anything with a fitness focus applies.

The long version: Fit-Ink hatched from two fit-minded Chicago journalists, Kate and Liz, on one of their weekly bike rides during the summer of 2008. A few e-mails, meetings off the trail (we run together, too), and months later, this site came to life as a "new year, new you" project on January 1, 2009. It's currently managed and written by Kate. You'll find workout tips, race reports, reviews, stories and more.
