Business At Niketown

Last night after work I had some business to attend to at NikeTown in Oxford Circus. On August 31st 1,000,000 people from around the world and I will run the Nike Human Race. This is a 10K that will be run in 25 cities from all around the world on that same day. You can choose from 3 charities (UNHCR, Livestrong, or WWF) for the proceeds of the registration and any other donations you would like to make will go to. The race packet that I picked up included an awesome red Nike dry fit shirt commemorating the run with the names of all the cities participating on the back. They also include a chip to tie to your shoe to get performance feedback on your time, distance, pace and calories burned.

Carlos Tevez also had some business to attend to at NikeTown yesterday; however I’m certain he will not be running the Human Race this year. Maybe the £35 million dollar man ($66,515,360) was trying on some new trainers? Maybe he was working on his Guy Ritchie directed Nike Take It film. Or maybe he was doing some work on a new Nike Joga Bonito video? Who knows what this Argentinian phenom had up his sleeve. All I know is that I made an exceptional choice picking him for my English Premier Fantasy Football team.
