Chicago Chapter

Captain Charlyn has been a runner nearly her whole life. Inspired by her dad (a 3:04 marathoner) and his passion for running, her first race was at age 8 where she won the 1 mile distance for her age group. She ran high school cross country until too many injury set backs caused her to take a break from the sport. In 2008 she became more serious and started training for half and full marathons (her favorite distances). In 2009 while at a bar with her husband, they discovered Mikkeller (by drinking a Mikkeller Black stout) and their views on craft beer were forever changed for the better.

In February 2015, Charlyn and her husband Luiz started the Chicago Mikkeller Running Club Chapter and enjoy the first Saturday runs out of their clubhouse, The Beer Temple
