20 Mile Run

“Dear Ruth;- I received your card. I practice in the gymnasium five times each week. I go over into West Chicago about a 20 mile run on the elevated R.R., and take a spinal adjustment each day, except Sunday. I’m feeling fine mother is still sick. Regards to all W.W.C.(?) 6315 Woodlawn Ave., Chicago, Ill.” This message was sent to Ruth Scoville in Genesee, Pennsylvania. This person sounds like a dedicated athlete! Perhaps they were a student at the University of Chicago? The message was on the back of the Cobb Hall postcard below, published by V.O. Hammon.
