Chicago and D.C. trash runs

If your idea of doing good goes beyond fund-raising, try trash running. Groups in Chicago and Washington run with garbage bags monthly and pick up trash as they go, cleaning up neighborhood trails and popular running loops. It might not be glamorous, but it adds a new challenge to your workout — and we hear it’s a lot of fun.
