Quote Of The Day
“I can say that I did receive an offer from Nike. I can say the offers were very similar in financial compensation and ultimately I chose to go with Brooks for a host of reasons but mainly because I feel like it’s a better match for my personality and the things I want to accomplish in the sport. … As someone who likes to have a lot of control (of what) goes on in my life, Brooks is the right match for me. With Nike, I kind of felt like they rented out the advertising space (on my bib) and were just happy to have me on the list but they never really wanted my input on anything and that was frustrating as a guy who is trying to run a business.”
