ATAYNE(ing) running success and social responsibility




This week I received a couple of running shirts from a company called ATAYNE (pronounced attain) and I am very excited about it. The shirts are truly beautiful, well made and cleverly designed. What I like most about these shirts is that they are made from 100% recycled materials and function as high performance athletic gear. We'll be giving these products a thorough test and will report our findings on Runner's Tech Review when we do. In the meantime think about giving a socially responsible shirt to your favorite runner this holiday season.

I needed a little more than great gear to get me through my run this morning. I did an elliptical workout on Thursday and this morning I awoke to 18 degree weather and a headache courtesy of last night's work holiday party. Now don't get me wrong, it isn't like I had a lot to drink. I didn't. It's just that nowadays, if I drink anything I pay for it the next day. I love Chimay Blue but it will be a while until I have another. Even with the cold and the ache I hit the road at 4:00 and covered 2.25 miles at a comfortable pace. Today's run was necessary to reinforce that neither cold nor (self created) discomfort are excuses to skip a run. I'm hoping to put some longer miles on the road or trails this weekend. I also need to complete and post my 2010 goals. New Years is only 2 weeks away!

  1. Hey thanks for leaving that link to the tech review. Ill be sure to check it out. Anymore, I can't really drink that much. I hate the feeling now days of even the slightest buzz. Are you getting any snow there on LI? If so Be safe and have a good one.

  2. I never was much of a drinker and since I came back to running I now go months between beers. We're getting some snow now but not as much as predicted by this time. How about you?

  3. Wow, the snow. Saturday, I was sent to NJ, where I got hammered. Had a safe trip though. Here in PA, not much came.
