It's been a long time since I have written anything on this blog. There are a few reasons for that.
First of all, we finally opened the new store (albeit in a temporary space). It's been really fun to work on opening a business over the last year or so. I have learned a ton, met a lot of great people along the way, and am excited about what the future holds. With that said, most of my time has been spent at the store and not in the mountains.
Second, because of the lack of free time during the days, my workouts/adventures have been taking place between about 4 and 6am. The majority of workouts lately have been trail runs, but we've thrown in some dry tooling and rock climbing as we anxiously await colder temperatures. Unfortunately, I rarely remember to bring a camera on my runs, and the camera on my phone takes horrible pictures (and doesn't have a flash for pictures when it's dark). Therefore, when I don't have pictures, I don't blog. It's just so much easier to download a picture than think of something interesting to say.
Anyway, here are a couple links to some of the press that our store has been getting recently. We're pretty excited about it.
This from the Standard Examiner. We appreciate the article and the Standard's support.
This from KUTV's morning show. Brandon, our marketing director, with Ron Bird:
