Oh wow - I am super excited - I have not really said much about it but a few months ago I received a random email telling me about a company called Nathan and how they were for the second year sponsoring a team of 10 amateur Canadian Athletes, with a link provided.
I went and looked at the link and read up on the team. I like the products they use or at least the ones I know about I use and like. I only use GU and well who does not like Sugoi products, I read the running magazine and well I don't know much about E.N.D. shoes the reports I have read are all good and lets face it is time to buy new trail shoes! And well Nathan has a whole line of fuel belts that I like - so it just seemed like a good fit.
Anyways I digress so after pondering it for a few weeks I mentioned it to my friend Kirsten and she was like OMG you should totally apply. What the heck - why not? So I did up a powerpoint presentation and sent it in.
I got the call this morning I am one of the 10!!!! WOW - really? This is so exciting and more importantly it shows that you don't always have to be the first across the line to be recognized! Thrilled to bits is all I have to say - and nothing like having the national spotlight on you to keep you true to your training and up your game!
Oh and here is a big heads up to all Shaunettes the last thing they said to me on the phone this morning was let the Shaunettes know.... No pressures ladies - I know you will bring your A game - IMC Penticton is not going to know what hit them!
