adidas running camp-Haile and friends, by Larry Eder


adidas global invited a group of media to Santa Monica, California for a few days of meetings on new product, interviews with athletes, and a chance to run or observe a training session of some of the world's greatest athletes!

When Haile Gebrselassie showed up, repleat in adidas garb, and telling all who would listen, " We are running 4:00 mile pact today, and then, laughing," the assembled media joined him for a nice run, jog or walk along the Santa Monica pier.

For my pace, I saw him at the beginning of my walk and the end, but it was fun to see him running with a pack of runners. As we walked down the paths along the beach, we saw Jenn Rhines doing some strideouts. Ah, running geekdom!
