Nike is no novice when it comes to an on-line presence, and an app for training and motivation. They have had runners log hundreds of millions of runs, with a staggering total of more than 2.5 billion miles. If a relay were set up for that distance, it would circle the Earth more than 108,000 times! The Nike+ Run Club amounts to a reliance of the app, but one which is careful to capture your other runs with the previous version - the Nike+ Running app, good news to the OCD among us (and if you have been running compulsively and recording obsessively, you know what I mean).
When it comes to track and field, “fast” takes on a number of definitions. It can mean sprinting 100 meters in 10.70 seconds or covering 10,000 meters in a medal-winning 27:30.42. Ahead of the summer, Nike footwear designers tasked themselves with not only outfitting but also accelerating athletes across this entire gamut.
