BOOM SHAKA LAKA!
Over the past couple years I’ve been sampling different brands of running singlets and shirts. Most of them had pros and only a select had cons but there was never the ‘cool aspect’ of the shirt’s design that I truly liked. Most of the time I would get a singlet and work with a local printing shop to come up with a cool design to screen on it. Downside to adding extra screening to a technical shirt though is that is gets heavy with the screen material. Thus can lead to chaffing. Yeeouch!
While searching the interweb this past winter for a 100 mile training program I stumbled across a couple of threads from some ultra runners about a company, INKnBURN, based out of California that create and sell unique athletic apparel. I checked out their site and while most of apparel is targeted for women I found the men’s section and their designs were EXACTLY what I was looking for. I’m pretty sure that week I placed my first order. The blogs where right, their product was top-notch apparel. Breath-ability, great quality of material and some kick@ss designs! My first purchased included the green Run or Die Skull singlet and the blue Ultra Runner tech shirt. When I got the Ultra Runner shirt I was like…is it to cocky to wear this? Who cares!!! I’ve run 50 milers….I’m d@mn proud of that and yes, I’m an ultra runner.
As early spring time marathon races started to roll around the corner I figured I need to revamp my running apparel. Thus a good reason for more INKnBURN singlets. 🙂 This time I got my boys excited for some shirts.
I noticed there was an Ambassador application that INKnBURN promotes for a select few to be part of their team to help promote their product but most importantly help promote being active and healthy. I figured I give a shot as that sounded like a perfect team to be part of. So I filled out my application and sent it in. And waited, and waited and waited. I thought that I wasn’t selected and I was okay with that. But then a couple of weeks back I noticed they posted their weekly MontageMonday photo. This photo typically is a collage of photos of people proudly wearing INKnBURN apparel at races/training runs/events/etc. But not this one!!!! The caption read…”Meet your newest additions to the INKnBURN Ambassador Program! Congratulations!” I quickly started to scan the photo to see if I had a photo of myself in it. I honestly didn’t see myself right away but when I did….let’s just say my fellow cube mates were startled by my excitement.
So I’m proud to say that I’m officially an INKnBURN Ambassador. Thank you Holly Miller for this amazing opportunity!
