So far this week we've received our:
Car magnet signs, custom finish line banner, wall signage (promo, promo promo):
Headsweat hats and visors (best running hats on the market)!:
La Sportiva 2012 sponsor package - Watch for raffles and other opportunities to win all the LS shoes we'll have this year to give away!:
|Crosslite 2.0 - My race shoe of choice this year.|
|Quantum - fits so comfy that you'll want to sleep in them.|
Hydrapak E-Lite Vests and Products (soft flasks, gel-bots, etc) Hottest vest on the market:
|My personal race vest - nothing lighter or more innovative out there in my opinion.|
All this gear and more will be available at sweet prices in our squeaky-clean new Inside Trail online store opening tomorrow! (if our lazy web guy can swing it).
My new bullhorn (Tim S. seems enamored with it but he's the quiet one and likely won't use it outside of his livingroom):
|Kickass new bullhorn.|
|My affinity for megaphones is well documented (Firecracker 5k - 2004)|
|It's eco-friendly. Converted to run on PBR.|
The weather forecast is improving for this Sunday's Brooks Falls Trail Run in Pacifica. Now they're calling for partly cloudy skies and a high near 60! We're rockin' and ready to roll out a great race. Everything's packed, in place and ready to be loaded in our massive dully truck…
Plenty of room still left in the race, so register today to save $$. We have very special 50k finisher awards that will undoubtedly become collectors' items. Scott Dunlap will be running with his sweet Nikon camera, snapping photos of everything and everyone for FREE download post race.
My training is going well. Did a leg-destroying stair workout day before yesterday that Mark Gilligan (ultrasignup.com) introduce me to (the jerk). 400 steps up the side of a "hill" in Oakland. I ran 2.5 miles there, did ten repeats (4,000 up / 4,000 down = ouch) and limped, quivery-legged home. Followed that up with a less than inspiring 9 miler with Tim S. yesterday on our Inside Trail Lake Chabot half marathon course. Then I headed out for some beer and sushi (best-recovery-food-ever… the sushi was good too).
Hope to see a bunch of you out on the trails in Pacifica this weekend!
