If you're lucky enough to be in the mountains, you are lucky enough.

When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.

Happy T-day!

With Holiday season in full swing, what's the best present to a fellow crazy ultra runner or, better yet, yourself? Look no further! Glenn took care of you!

Hi Everyone!

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:


Pacific Coast Trail Runs

Everyday Athlete (Kirkland, WA): www.everydayathlete.us
FootZone Bend (Bend, OR): www.footzonebend.com

Seattle Running Company (Seattle, WA): www.seattlerunningcompany.com

You'd be doing us a huge favor and we encourage you to spread the word...through blogs, web sites, lists, forums, bulletin/message boards, newsletters, running clubs, word of mouth...because the more people that hear about and support this project, the more the trails will benefit.

THANKS in advance for supporting our project! And we'd love to hear from you...good or bad...your feedback is always welcome!

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!

Thanks for the link, I put my calendar request in to Santa. I had minor surgery on my nose (turbinates) and haven't run for a week and a half. It was a good forced break after Autumn Leaves. Like you I miss the running and the running community. I'm starting my return with an easy job/walk tomorrow with the Y club.

Sorry about the Montrail team, I know you really like it. Remember, you're always welcome to stay with us if you come up this way for a run or just want a weekend visit with the local runners. Of course, Stephen and Alex are welcome.
