"Esteemed Athletes* of New York City,
This Saturday, December 6th, your NIKE+ NYC Training journey will culminate with the Finale. In the spirit of competition, I want to make sure you are properly prepared for what you are about to face.
The weather for The Finale is currently looking to hover around 50° with a likely chance of rain. We will be stationed near the water, so the wind will also be a factor. The kits you were given were meant to prepare you for this type of environment, so please remember to wear your Hyperwarm tights and tops provided to you. Your overall experience & safety is paramount, so bring whatever you need to be comfortable and perform at an optimum level. There may be a short period between your warm-up and the start of the competition, so feel free to bring hats, gloves, and scarves for the earlier hours. Throughout this competition, your NIKE gear will serve as your uniform, to identify and unite each team as you push yourselves throughout the morning. As the competition heats up, so will you.
Keeping your safety and comfort in mind, we will provide heated areas for all athletes to warm themselves throughout The Finale. Bag check will also be available to store your belongings through the duration of the day.
A reminder that nutrition and hydration are keys to athletic success that extend both before and after the day of competition; but not to worry, there will be plenty of water, snacks, and other refreshments available to you at the site.
Make sure you bring your best on Saturday. Our NIKE+ NYC Training journey isn’t over yet, and I want to make sure this is a memorable experience for all of you. Be prepared for any weather regardless of projected reports. This is the time of the year where conditions can change hourly. Look out for yourselves, your teammates, and respectfully, the competition. Prepare yourselves - body and mind -for what is to come."
