All eyes are focused on the Boston Marathon. A few of our New York Running Company associates are going up to run this iconic event, which is even more special this year given last year’s tragic events.
We are joining with Nike to support Stronger Every Run, a special program that will benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) by getting runners to pledge their miles on Monday, April 21, the day of the Boston Marathon. The funds that are raised will benefit the survivors of the tragedy as well as physically challenged athletes in the Boston area.
Anyone who uses the Nike+ app can participate. All you need to do is RUN… and tag your miles with #strongereveryrun. Nike will donate $1 for every mile you run up to $150,000! Complete details can be found here. We are dedicating next Monday’s Sexy Pace run to this effort, so we encourage you all to come join us!
Today’s Thursday Trivia Challenge celebrates one of the most iconic cars in automotive history, which was introduced with great fanfare 50 years ago today. This car heralded the new “pony” cars that became so popular through the ’60s and 70s. What is the name of this car? For extra credit, what was the sticker price? Send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org (put “Trivia” in the subject). We will pick one winner at random from all the correct responses who will win a New York Running Company t-shirt.
