You hear the rope before you see it. Coming in the front door of the Bellemeade Community Center on the South Side. Thwack, thwack, thwack. Heading down the stairs. Thwack. Thwack. Thwack. Into the gym. Thwack. Thwack. Thwack. And there stand two women, each holding the opposite ends of two jump ropes.
