Better late than never. I realize the expo starts tomorrow but work has kicked my butt all week and I haven’t been timely as usual. The above video gives you an idea of what the Brooks exhibit/space will look like at the expo on Saturday and Sunday. Not your typical running booth huh. As a salesperson myself, I have to say they’ve gone above and beyond the usual exhibit space.
I volunteered to work the expo on Saturday morning. Hopefully, I’ll see some of you there. The thing about Brooks is not only do they have a great product, they have a sense of humor. And it’s a functional sense of humor. They will have a full size English double decker bus on hand. On the upper level, they will offer stride analysis. Anyone can put a treadmill on a floor. But Brooks takes it to a whole other level by putting those treadmills on the top of a double decker bus. There will be carnival games. Somehow, I don’t think they will be rigged against the player like the local carnivals do.
Preview of the race will come tomorrow. My ultimate goal will be to get into Corral B for the Chicago Marathon with a qualifying time here.
