Remember when I ran with Foot Locker? No? Did you actually forget that I was a professional runner in the past? Well not professional, technically. I did receive remunerations. Sort of. I didn't get paid in cash, but I did get a pair of the shortest (and loosest) shorts I've ever owned. And that is worth a lot. Oh, and the Foot Locker Five Borough Challenge was splendidly fun.
|Not the shorts.|
Two years ago I got the call. But only because I had missed the email. When they finally made contact I had almost lost my chance. But I headed down towards mid-town and took my interview. I passed. I represented Manhattan.
If you want to see the short shorts check out this sweet video.
This year's Manhattan representative, Evan Wood. He looks fast. I hope he finishes first and brings home the trophy!
