Each participant in the Nike+ Human Race 10K will receive:

Other goodies

Each Nike+ Human Race 10K Finisher will receive a Finisher's Bracelet.

Sound so tempting hor.. the Tees look nice.. Shd be dry fit, i tink.
2 things is affecting my decision:
1) It is 1 wk after my Sgp Bay Run, where i be running 10km. So not sure if i can recover on time.
2) The price is a bit pricey.. $45+7%= $48.15.. I understand it is for charity.. and i get to rec a Nike T, a Finisher's Bracelet. But wonder how much is donated to the charities of my choice?

At the point of blogging this, my hb has not replied me if he wan to join... So will blog again on my decision in my next posting. :)
