After this morning’s 5 mile recovery run, I was met with a nice little surprise. Once my Nike+ Sportband completed syncing… a video window popup up! And it was none other than Carl Lewis!!
Carl let me know, “You’ve made it to black. Gravity’s got nothing on you.”
Check out the video here.
I also had a message that read, “Well, you’ve done it. You’ve blown our minds. Congratulations. 5,000 km (3,107 miles) is our highest honor. Relish it.” Turns out that’s enough miles to get me from New York to California! Sweet!
The only real difference, as far as my Nike+ dashboard is concerned, is that everything changed colors from a lame purple (previous level) to a cool black. Check out the picture on right!
True, there will be no ticker-tape parade, award ceremony, or giant cash prize… but this was a nice confidence booster so close to the New York City Marathon. I am more excited than I have ever been for a marathon! WATCH OUT NYC!!
