Woah. This is the coolest thing!
ASICS launched the “Support Your Marathoner” system for the New York City Marathon next Sunday. It will activate the RFID tag attached to runners’ shoes. As the runners run through the course, the tag will trigger special messages of love and cheer sent by friends, family, and supporters to the runner on an LED screen as they pass it. The three screens will be located at Miles 9, 12 and 22.
I’ve registered for this already and it would be awesome if you could send in your messages for me. It would be great distraction from the cold (expect temp of 8C and scattered showers daw. Brrrr!) or the pain…or both! Thanks in advance!
Here’s how to send your message:
1. Visit Support Your Marathoner website
2. Use this data:
Name: Jaymie Pizarro
Entry Number: 797217
