Time to Check Your Legs

The prizes keep coming. This year's Check Your Legs Road Race promises to be the best race ever. For only $5 you get to race on a great road course; you have a chance to win some cool prizes; and, you'll be able able to eat some unhealthy food afterwards. Rumor has it there may be some beers in the cooler. Yeah, I've hired a bouncer too that can spot a fake ID a mile away. The guys at The Sneaker Store have gone above and beyond in regards to prizes. This time it's a Adidas Sports watch. I think it's the model Erik Zabel used to wear. Stylish with a Japan movement...water resistant and sporty.
