When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.
The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire
The secret of life is that there is no secret of life. It's all hard work. Yet you still have to find the right works and be free to choose direction that is best for you.
The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

You need a wall calendar, right? Holiday gifts? Stocking stuffers?
The 3rd edition of the "Tribute to the Trails" wall calendar are on their way to the stores and they should receive them sometime this week! Here's a peek at what the calendar looks like.
As always, this is a fundraiser and all proceeds from the sales will be directly donated to Washington Trails Association www.wta.org, the wonderful people who create, repair and maintain the trails we love to play on.
Printing costs are the major obstacle for a project like this, and we'd like to thank Dirty Girl Gaiters Dirty Girl Gaiters and Pacific Coast Trail Runs for their generous sponsorship. Gratitude also goes out to ZombieRunner for their online services and the stores who are donating their time to sell the calendars, the races who made
additional monetary contributions, and the athletes who permitted us the use of their images.
The price of the calendar is $18 and here's where you can purchase them:

So, what are you waiting for? I got mine ordered while eating turkey:)
That is NOT IT for holiday gifts! Check out Running Mitts hand-made by Vicki Idema, who is a Mom to Ashley Idema, a fellow Montrail team member and a super-duper nice girl - that been on top of super-duper fast girl too! (last year she won AC100 as her first 100M race, and this year placed a VERY close second, pushing Suzanna Bonn to a new CR). If you live in climates that have winter, you need these!
