Sponsorship (Read 745 times)


A Sweetheart

    I want to be a sponsored athlete.  Not by a shoe company.  Any run of the mill (very fast) ultrarunner can do that.  I have found stuff that is so fantastic, that I would gladly paste their logos all over my body just for free product.  I really should get to writing them. 

     

    • Five Hour Energy-  It doesn't make my heart race, gives me a little boost, and definitely helps me stay awake and moving through the night.
    • Immodium- I'd stop running if it wasn't for this stuff.  It is a miracle worker.  'Nuff said.
    • Wrigley 5 gum (Cobalt)-  After finishing the 24 Hours of Laramie I realized that I had been working on the same piece of gum for the last 25 hours while also eating and drinking.  Its texture still held up.  After my 6 hour a few weeks ago it was still minty.  I love this stuff.

     

    What kind of things that are normally not associated with running have all of you fallen so in love with, that you would gladly wear their logos plastered all over your body?

        Good stuff. What about Pepto? I hear you guzzle that stuff like it's alcohol.

            Oh yeah!  Taco Bell!  It helps me not need the immodium.  Very important the day before a race.  You think they want to do an ad with me pushing the fact that it helps prevent the trots?

             

            I have never puked during an ultra.  This really bothers me.  I wonder if I am just not trying hard enough.  Most ultras are spew-fests.  All I can think of is that the Pepto chugging is preventing me from becoming a true ultrarunner.  I actually love the taste of Pepto.  I keep it in all my drop bags.  I have had a bottle open in more than one bag.  Pink everything.

              I have yet to puke ever during any race and I am a puker. Perhaps I need to try running drunk.

                Duh.

                  They already shell out like 25 million a year for racing:

                   

                   

                  So, really, how much difference would a million or two more make?

                   

                  As for me, I'd want to be sponsored by Cherry Coke, the taste of which always takes me back to my first Dead show: "Just like New York City, just like Cherry Coke . . ."

                    You are right.  Trent should put on a beer mile as part of Monkey festivities.  Friday evening before hitting downtown.
