Dirty 2nd Half

Hey folks, despite some conflicting reports the Footzone Dirty 2nd Half is NOT FULL! We are over half way to our 500 limit and the race is happening in just over a couple of weeks. Sof if you were considering running but heard the false rumor come on down and sign up to be part of a great new race. For those of you from out of town the Seventh Moutain Resort is offering a special rate for lodging. $89.00 per night for racers you however must be registered to get the sweet hookup. How cool would that be to roll out of bed with a two minute walk to the start line? Contact the resort at (541) 382-8711 to get hooked up.

Thanks for reading,

Icebreaker merino & other techie fun...

Well, I rarely get too fired up about clothing; however, my dorkiness will be completely revealed in this entry. I remain so impressed by the Icebreaker merino wool t-shirt that I'm showing great restraint in my praises for this fabric. Amy and I were in Hood River last weekend exploring, mountain biking, and enjoying an abundace of fruit and vegetable stands . We opted to camp (Tollbridge County Park is awesome by the way) and wakened each morning with the sudden chill of fall approaching. We packed minimally and by the end of the weekend I was clearly the minimalist victor. My winning piece of 'gear,' the 4 year old Icebreaker merino T. I wore it for nearly 3 of 4 days in some fashion; as a driving shirt (although soft it didn't quite match up to the softness of my deerskin driving gloves), as a baselayer beneath my cycling jersey(Amy tries to avoid close encounters w/ me after cycling), as a post mtn. bike T, and to culminate its impressiveness, I even slept in it one night... Now, I'm not certain what the reader's impression will be by all this... But, I'd like to think that I'm a little bit of a clean freak and more than hygienic so when a t-shirt doesn't even hint at a stink after wearing to that extent (and Amy is still willing to sit next to me) I'll give it my two thumbs up.

On a quick sidenote, the days are getting shorter and you need a little light that packs a punch! Check out the e+Lite by Petzl.

Until next time-- keep running.

Learn to Run Starting Up!

The next session of Learn to Run and Fitness Walk starts tomorrow and once again, we're overwhelmed with all the enthusiasm. Several members of the Spring LTR have been out recruiting heavily. It's great to see their exitement for the program. We're already just shy of 100 participants with more coming in all the time. There were so many positive stories from the last session and I can't wait to meet another group. Cheers-Teague
