Outdoor Blogger Network, Good Running Reads, Red Bull Trail Daze



I recently submitted my blog to the Outdoor Blogger Network, a new site celebrating the great outdoors. They were kind enough to create a new directory category for me, Trail Running Blogs. I see they've also added a Mountain Biking blogs category, and they appear amenable to working with people to get sites involved. Head over and submit your blog, maybe they'll create a general endurance sports category for multisporters?

Tomorrow is the Red Bull Trail Daze. I picked up my race packet on Wednesday, thinking I was going to get a Red Bull Beanie like the one pictured above. However, I was mistaken, it's actually a Saucony winter running hat, pictured below. Mixed feelings on not getting the one with the propeller. :)


Have a great weekend, all!

  1. Hi Kovas,
    Great list of books! I was just at the book store the other day looking at running books. Now if I could just have time to read:)

    Good luck this weekend with the Red Bull Trail Blaze!

  3. Long Run is on my Christmas list, but I haven't heard of the Myles Mayberry one - thanks for the tip!
    Good luck this weekend, that beanie is still cool, even without the propeller!

  6. Darn. The multi colored beanie would have been great especially if the propeller was battery activated.

  7. The Long Run by Matt Long I have never read but he is a graduate of Iona College in New Rochelle, NY (like myself) so I take great pride in that and his story is UNREAL. If you never heard of Matt Long google him and just read a little bit of his story.

  8. I like the Saucony cap.

    I mean, don't get me wrong - the multi-colored propeller cap has more sex appeal - but hey, you can't have ALL the cool gear :)

  11. Maybe we can be creative and attach a propeller to the winter running hat? Just give me a craft store and it's done!

  14. The beanie with the spinny thing would have been much cooler! :)

  15. why don't you pick up one of those bolsa wood/rubber band plane on the way home from work, take off the propeller assembly and make it yourself?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'll see if I can find a propeller for you to add. Thanks for the network link. Looks like a great place to submit my guide blog once it is updated again.

    Every weekend I say I'm going write about my trips from the last year but I go ride my bike instead. I need an administrative assistant.

  18. Thanks for the reading list - I was just thinking about creating a new wish list for the holidays. Good luck with the race tomorrow. Chug a little Red Bull beforehand and you won't need the propeller to take off!
