WHO Nike and AKIN
WHAT WE RUN CHI., a party to kick off the launch of the Chicago LunarGlide+3 & a preview of Nike’s fall collection before the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
WHEN Saturday, October 1 [the day after TOMORROW!], 3-5 p.m.
WHERE AKIN, 2350 N. Clark, Chicago, 60614 [map here]
WHY Well, for starters:
+ Nike specially commissioned local Chicago artist Tara D. to design these one-of-a-kind LunarGlide+3′s.
+ Nike reps will be on hand to give tips on running in the rain, the dark, and in these chilly fall and winter months.
+ There will be complimentary food, drinks and snazzy giveaways [after all, it's Nike we're talking about].
+ You can get a sneak peek at Nike’s new Marathon Collection and fall running line.
Plus …I can hardly contain my excitement because the lovely folks at Nike are kindly gifting me a pair of these limited edition sneaks, yippie! I may not have a million dollars but I will have the coolest kicks in town! ‘Tis the little things in life my friends.
I plan to lace up my new LunarGlide+3′s for trips to the coffee shop, gallivanting around town, and maybe even once in awhile for an actual run. I’m thinking these are just the motivation I need to hit the lakefront trail when the temperature takes a plunge. I can’t keep these lovelies all to myself!
Even though I’m most definitely NOT running the marathon, I will gladly show my support [from the sidelines] by sporting my new sneaks. So Saturday, bring your friends … 2350 N. Clark … 3-5 pm … come run, come all!
