Nike, I Love You.

Nike, you rock.
I love you for giving me (and other runners too!) the chance to Run Super Natural with Paula Radcliffe.
That’s Paula front centre. As if you needed me to point that out!
You are awesome for giving us free tech shirts so we can be twins with Paula;)
P.S. The ‘Super Natural’ thing is about their new Nike Frees!
And a free wristband too, that I’ve kept on to remind me to MAKE IT COUNT every day.
Most of all, I love you Nike for giving people like me the chance to meet, speak, and run with our idols. Especially since this is my second Paula-Nike event! You can read about my first one here.
In case you don’t know, the man on Paula’s left is Dai Green, the current European, Commonwealth, and World Champion at 400m hurdles. He is amazing.
After a speedy 5k run (avg pace was 6.30 min/mile, even with the splits all over the place thanks to the MANY stops that come with running through Central London!), there was a interview with Paula and Dai, done by Steve Cram (who set the WRs for 1500m, 2000m, and the mile all within a 19-day period!)
I filmed part of it, but it’s taking too long to upload! I’ll post it later if I can!
One of my favourite parts was a Q&A at the end, where Paula described her pre-marathon build-up mileage as “moderate”. And that was 120-130 mile weeks. I almost passed out.
I also love you Nike because you make the coolest shorts ever.
Although for that reason, my bank balances hates you
Nike, I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU!!
P.S. Saucony I love you too! But you know that already;)
