What Would You do?????

Today's run was uneventful, Sandy and I started together but of course shew as going a little further than me.....

Once we separated, I noticed a younger runner coming my way.

He was shirtless and appeared to not even be sweating.....

He came up on me and we gave each other the obligatory head nod and he sped up.

What would you do????

Of course I picked up the pace and tried to stay with him... AM I stupid or what???

Well, it didn't last long but it was fun while it did last.

I knew that I couldn't keep up with him but he pulled me a mile and it felt great.

So have you chased that runner before???

Oh yes, I sure have! It's always easier to push it with a target.

For sure! I think it must be a reflex, or something, but I always do !

I recently came across your blog and thought you might be interested in writing a guest blog for The Clymb. We're a private sale network for a vast array of outdoor brands that include running, biking, climbing, skiing, snowboarding and other outdoor/athletic accessories.

We’re running a blog series asking outdoor enthusiasts to tell us about their Clymbs. A Clymb can be the motivation behind climbing a mountain or getting up before the sun to go for a run. The blog should reveal how you got started in the sport, what inspires you, and what you’ve gained or learned.

We think our members would be interested in why people participate in certain activities and that it’d be a pretty fun read. We’ll link back to your blog in the post, tweet about it and share it with our fans on Facebook. We have a wide reach and you should get new readers because of it.

Here are a few blogs that we recently ran from some climbers:

We’d also love it if you accepted the invitation for a free membership below:


Twice a week, members receive deals on popular athletic brands like DAKINE, SIGG, and Mountain Khakis. Once you become a member, you'll have your own invite code you can share with your friends.

Upon shipment of their first order, you'll receive a $10 credit for your own future purchases. (That's $10 per first shipment for each person you sign up).

Also, if you know of other triathletes with blogs that might be interested, please let me know.

Hope to hear from you soon,
