"It's very hard in the beginning to understand that the whole idea is not to beat the other runners. Eventually you learn that the competition is against the little voice inside you that wants to quit." GEORGE SHEEHAN
So I get an e-mail today from NS, one of the very intelligent socialite in the NY Flyers:
My company is looking for runners like you...
for a focus group. Here are the details:
We are interested in runners' media habits. If accepted you will be given a diary where you will log your media habits in a 24 hour period, either Wednesday September 24th or Saturday September 27th.
A gift certificate for a free pair of running shoes (worth over $100) will be provided as an incentive to those who participate in the focus group and complete a diary. Food will also be served at the focus group.
Where: The office of Zenith Optimedia
When: Monday, September 29th or Monday October 6th from 6:00-8:00pm
Focus group dates are first come, first serve, so to secure your spot and confirm your participation
Also, please include in the e-mail how many miles per week that you run and how many pairs of running shoes per year you purchase.
Additionally, the diary that you complete must be returned 1-2 business days after completion.
To complete the diary you will need to print out a copy and return it by dropping it off at our Manhattan location
Please forward this email to anyone you know that might be interested.
