Strive On

It began with Pheidippides 2,500 years ago. Now it's your turn. Run.

In a powerful ad by the Wieden + Kennedy agency, Nike urges you to keep running. Even if you're dead last in the race, you can finish the race. You can become a runner simply by persisting.

That is one seriously awesome ad.

There is some question about the story of Pheidippides being true. It is generally referred to as "a legend." The distance of a marathon has been changed a few times - it went from 25 miles to 26 miles because it fit desirable starting and end points.
