In Chicago, summer disappears in a (albeit really hot) flash, inadvertently instilling in everyone a desire to make the most out of every sun-drenched moment, for fear of wasting a perfect 80-degree day and looking back on it wistfully when the polar freezes strike.
This summer, we’re putting a name to that motivational carpe diem: the ULTRA summer.
In dictionary terms, ULTRA is “going beyond what is usual or ordinary; excessive; extreme.” Or, as we lovingly say, “the most.”
Applied to your precious three months of summer, that means taking advantage of every moment, from summer Fridays to earlier sunrises and later sunsets, and all the spur-of-the-moment picnics, patios, and proseccos that happen in between. It means saying ‘yes’ to a new adventure and stepping outside of your comfort zone, whether that’s tackling an open water swim for the first time or impulsively signing up for an improv class.
Your ULTRA summer might look different from ours (which includes morning draft lattes from La Colombe, settling in with a book on a blanket in the park, and #SweatworkingCrawls with our pals and the Michelob ULTRAs we cheers with afterwards, thanks for asking).
But whatever that ULTRA summer includes for you, we want to see it — and we want to help you live your best ULTRA summer life.
We’re partnering with Michelob ULTRA for a giveaway that’s sure to inspire you to live your most ULTRA summer. Here are the deets and here are the very official sweepstakes rules brought to you by lawyers.
