yeah - we're different

Blast from the past Friday.  These are Adidas running ads that ran in 1999/2000.  I remember when they came out - at the time I thought they were funny but I definitely appreciate them in a different way now as a runner.







 The stretching guy and (unfortunately) the tree squatting is all too familiar to me.  These ads just perfectly capture what runners consider "normal". 

And here's a current ad, got it from the Nike Women's FB page - referring to the stupid ruling that will take Paula Radcliffe's world record away from her because she ran the race with men.  Love this.



Happy Friday!
