Buy Your Running Shoes Now!
The weather over the next couple of days should be gorgeous... 64 and sunny Thursday and Friday. Great time to go for a jog at Swords Park. If you need new running shoes though I suggest you buy them quickly because the prices could be going up fast. According to NBC News there is a strike at a huge sneaker factory in China that supplies shoes to Nike and Adidas. Tens of thousands of workers are off the job for the second straight week. The workers, who earn as little at $1.67 per hour (about 2% of what the shoes they manufacture sell for) are demanding a 30% pay increase. So if you need to purchase new running shoes... Just Do It... Quick!
