USA Mountain Running National Championships!

Hey y'all! ...Figured since I (Asher) am now settled in the great state of Georgia, and currently sipping on some sweet tea, I might be allowed to toss "y'all" into the vocabulary:)

Well, the past few months have been a wild ride! Moving coast to coast, starting school and trying to survive weekly exams has created a decent amount of mayhem, to say the least. In fact, as we speak I am taking a break from studying physical therapy modalities to jot a quick note to everyone out there.

Big news of the day: Tomorrow morning at 9:15 EST Dallas will be competing in the USA Mountain Running National Championships! It is his first experience with this type of race and he is extremely excited to test his capabilities. In preparation, he has been training in the Cascade Mountains; running up and down steep hills and rough terrain. The race is held at Mt. Cranmore, New Hampshire, a few hours north of Boston, MA and the USA Mountain Running Team is providing LIVE updates (Link) for anyone who would like to keep up with Dal's progress throughout the race!

The top 6 men to finish qualify for the USA Mountain Running Team that will compete in the World Mountain Running Championships in Poland on September 9th. Although Dal's main objective is to get some experience in this venue, he has his eye on beating some amazing athletes as well as throwing his name out there as a legitimate  threat. Hope you guys have a chance to watch him do just that!

Hope everyone is doing well! Big thanks to our sponsors 110% Play Harder, Brooks ID and Honeystinger for helping Dal earn this great opportunity.

Much love,
