2015 is looking (way!) up. Here are two reasons why.
The Balanced Athlete
The Balanced Athlete has been a supporter of and partner store with the Seattle Running Club for years but for 2015 they approached me and offered to give me some additional support.
I'm psyched to work with a store that promotes so many different kinds of healthy activities; and is completely immersed in the local running scene and community involvement. Among other things The Balanced Athlete hosts multiple group runs from the store, they support the Cougar Mountain Trail Run Series, they staff an aid station at the Cascade Crest 100 and the list goes on.
No to mention they are instrumental in organizing one of my favorite events ever, the Fat Glass 50k.
I'm thrilled to promote a company that shares my love of an active lifestyle and lifelong fitness.
Brooks has been sponsoring a subset of SRC members for quite some time (thanks Brooks!). I submitted my application a month ago and just heard back that it was accepted. I'm super happy to once again be part of the SRC-Brooks Competitive Team and to represent the best club and some awesome product.
I have been running in Brooks shoes and clothing for two years now and I'm looking forward to a third. The PureGrit (2 and 3) has been one of my favorite trail shoes ever since it was available and their EZ T material (which our team shirts used to be made from) has got to be the most comfortable tech shirt material I have ever worn.
Partners are good to have and I am very grateful to have these two. Bring on 2015.
