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!
