New Sponsors for 2014

First off, Merry Christmas to those of you celebrating!  Happy New Year! I have a little quote to bring into the new year:

Be where you are right now and be there with intention, strength and flexibility.  There's no where else to go but where you are right now.  

 and, a favorite of mine:

“You have the freedom to be yourself, your true self, here and now, and nothing can stand in your way.”
Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull 


My Running & Race Directing in the New Year 
2014 is looking to be super exciting! I have created some new races that I am more passionate about than ever (that little Tahoe 200 mile Endurance Run & Deception Pass Half & Chuckanut Mountain Marathon).  My Bellingham Trail Running Series is really taking off and I've had incredible response to making it a half marathon series with some other distances thrown in.

Continued Support
I'd like to thank Smith Optics & Hypoxico Altitude Tents for their continued support. 
Pearl Izumi Trail M2.  Yes, that is real dirt. Doesn't come with the shoes, but pairs well with them anyway...
New Smith Optics sunglasses just in time for Hawaii!!  I had my other ones stolen from my car.  Damn style conscious Bellingham thief.
PI Ultra Team
If that weren't enough, I was just a little, ok ok, I was really excited to get a message from Scott Jaime. THE Scott Jaime, inviting me on to the 2014 Pearl Izumi Ultra Team! Last summer Scott set an impressive overall FKT 486-mile Colorado Trail in 8 days, 7 hours, 40 minutes, and 17 seconds!  What a talented group of runners PI has for 2014.  I'm in good company.

Ultimate Direction
I'll be hydrating with Ultimate Direction gear this year as well, thank you UD!!! I've been really impressed with UD's commitment to lightweight running vests. I'm excited to try the Jenny Collection.  I will use the Ultra Vesta for HURT 100 in Januaury. Love the new women's colors!
