One of Nike's summer slogans is "Run this Town," and as part of that feature, asked the Fleet Feet team to do an early morning photo shoot along the lakefront. Here's the first two pics to be released:

Very cool! Even though you can see yourself so clearly in the 2nd one, the first one is the winner for me. That's frame on the wall worthy! Reminds me a bit of one of the "There Is No Finish Line" Nike pictures like the one below. You should definitely try and get big prints of both of those Fleet Feet shots. Your wall in your future exercise/treadmill room is going to be awesome.

When I saw the first one, the "There Is No Finish Line" photos immediately came to mind. There will be more coming, some with the skyline in the background, so I'm holding off to see what one to frame.

I hate getting up at 4:30 am (photo shoot was from 5-7:30), but this was worth it.

+1 Very cool, Dave-O!

I did something similar once for New Balance, but they only showed our feet running along the esplanade. This is way, way cooler than that.

Oh trust me, we had many shoe/feet only shots as well. I was worried those would be all that made the cut.

Very cool, Dave. It was tough to recognize you without a hat though. Wink

Those are some nice looking pictures. I agree with Chris about the first being frameworthy. The other one is cool as well, but while it is easier to see you, it looks like you are getting chicked. Did they want the tall guy in back so you wouldn't block out the other runners?

Getting chicked? I assumed he had positioned himself strategically. Smile

His eye level is too high for that. Now, if Dave had been looking downward..... Very Happy
