222 Days to go - Selling out to the Man
So a while back I did something impetuous. No not sign up for a 100 mile trail ultramarathon, that is perfectly logical and thought out. No I signed up to be in the Brooks sponsored runner program. Now the idea of me, guy who hates running, stinks at running, and oh by the way owns absolutely no Brooks products, becoming a sponsored runner is pretty ri-DONK-ulous. But on a whim I filled out the web form a few months ago. I guess I thought, well, I like filling out useless web forms, why not this one? Anyway, a while back I got a contract in the mail, filled it out, and now I'm in the Brooks ID program. Weird. Mostly I just like the laugh I get when I've told people I signed a running contract with Brooks.
Here's the what is Brooks ID Program video.
