No classified ad needed. This Chicago marathoner posted his listing on his back.

Following his breakup, runner Steve Bergstrom came up with a crazy, free and efficient way to get a date. The night before he ran the Chicago Marathon, he had his cousin write 
“SINGLE. / on Facebook / Steve Bergstrom” on his back in permanent marker. 

“I have a job that occupies a lot of my time,” he said. “Having a ridiculous hour commute each way, and then also being dedicated to my gym and dedicated to my sports, I don’t have a ton of spare time on my hands.”

Due to his lack of spare time, Steve is seeking a companion that is understanding of his commitment to fitness. A marathon was the perfect location to run his ad (literally and figuratively!) to find someone who shared his interests. 

So far, Steve has been contacted by 12 different women who saw his ad. But will he find his perfect match?
