Nike kicks off OwnChicago campaign for Chicago Marathon

Last night Niketown kicked off the OwnChicago launch campaign to get everyone pumped for the marathon on Sunday.  The goal: get everyone tweeting and facebooking to @nikechicago with the (hashtag) #ownchicago about how you are going to own chicago on Sunday.  When you send the message your picture will be added to a mosaic picture- you can see the photo here.  Last night's event was kicked off with Sarah Spain from ESPN, Robbie Gould from the Chicago Bears, the fastest male and female Chicagoan from last years marathon.  They are going to try and uphold that title this year as well.

I also checked out all the new merchandise for this weekends festivities.  Check it out below.

Good Luck to all the marathoners this weekend! #ownchicago

Have a fun and fit day, Chicago.
