Nike and Akin Unveil Chicago Marathon Gear and Lunarglide+3

How did I not know about this event until, oh, just now?

I've always thought that I stay on top of at least some of the running action in Chicago and that I'm a reporter, considering I also run with the media team (we'll be out tomorrow at the Bucktown 5K and you've seen some of us throughout the spring and summer at the Soldier Field 10, Elvis is Alive and Fort2Base). I'm nowhere near as recognizable as my media teammates--trust me, I can arrive and depart pretty anonymously, just how I like it--yet I still find and report on the endurance community's news.

But apparently I missed the boat on this release until now. Sure, I got to run in the Lunarglide+3 two weeks before it was officially unveiled--awesome!--and learn about the Nike 26.2 Preview before it actually happened and see some of the 2011 Chicago Marathon gear fresh on the shelves (Fleet Feet had it on display when I stopped by last Saturday). But this? I think I'm rearranging my Saturday schedule--aka workout--to go check it out. The gear is awesome as Fleet Feet already showed me. I need a little running kick in the pants. My run that was supposed to happen this morning hasn't started yet and at the rate I'm going, probably will not. And heck, it beats watching my college football team get beat down on the field.
