In the Cards
We picked up these playing cards at the pre-NYC Marathon party Brooks threw at Providence on 57th Street this past Saturday. The bash was in honor of the Hanson brothers. No, not the dorky hockey brothers from the Slap Shot movie or the Hanson kids who came up with the "MMMBop" hit. But the two brothers who started the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project, an elite running group sponsored by Brooks. Thirteen members of the team competed in the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in NYC on Saturday and nine finished in the top 30, including Brian Sell, who finished third to earn a spot on the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team.
More "sights and scenes" from Marathon Weekend coming soon...
