Pearl Izumi

Many things going on in my work life right now so I won't have time to blog about everything but I did want to put up a couple things here.

Group Run tomorrow:
Come on down to the The HR Backcountry Pancake Trail 20 miler next Saturday (11/19). Arrive at 7am for coffee, juice, and to take care of pre-run business. Run starts at 7:30am from my house and will follow the trails for about 18.5 miles before hitting pavement for the last stretch back to the house. Upon our return, there will be plenty of hot pancakes (thanks to the lovely Tanya), and more coffee and juice for all. The HR trails around the backcountry are more like a lumpy pancake. Plenty of ups and downs, twists and turns. There is a bunch of fun single track. It's a good workout, but won't completely kick your butt.

REI just started picking up Pearl Izumi shoes, in particular, the Fuel and Peaks. I ask the readers of this blog to go to and write a review for each of these shoes. That's if you have tried them. And be honest. Pearl Izumi is looking to make their shoes better for what you need and they won't know what you want if you don't say. Your reward will be, well, better shoes for you but I will also give you a little gift next time I see you. Just go to the website, type in Pearl Izumi shoes in the search box, find each of the shoes, and simply write a review. You will need to set up an account but that's not such a bad thing, it will allow you to buy things online and not have to go fight holiday crowds. Everybody wins! Thank you!

Along the lines of shoes, Pearl Izumi is looking for wear testers. I obviously have been a wear tester for the last 6 years but they just changed their wear tester size from a 10 to a 9 so I am out. If you would like to give some honest feedback to PI see the below message:

SIZE MATTERS. WEAR TESTERS NEEDED: attention all local Boulder/Denver Pearl Izumi fans. We are in need of some men's size 9 RUN footwear Fit-Testers. This will involve spending 30 minutes at the PI HQ with the development guru fit testing our new patterns. If you are interested and available this week, please call 303-464-6100 for more information.

And the last thing, check out the video below. This is really well done! It really captures all the pivotal moments at UTMB. Enjoy.
