This week has simply flown by…returning from Austin and getting back to basics with the family was awesome, but simultaneously amazingly hard. We have held a Women’s Open House for Endurance Nation and I have launched a new marathon focused site: Marathon Nation (but more on that later).
Multisport World Expo on Saturday 3/20
This is going to be a great event, although it could be sabotaged by the great weather we are having. Coach P will be there all day just inside the entrance at the EN table. Stop by to say Hi, represent EN, come to his talk @ 10:45 AM or watch him suffer at the indoor TT @ 12:15. Maybe you’d prefer to wait until 4pm to meet him at the Asgard for a beer? That’s okay too…see you soon!
Lots of writing but very little to show for it. I will have some new articles soon, but in the meantime please get ready for my Fit Life eBook (Free). It will be released this weekend and I think you’ll like it a lot. If you pay attention to my blog you’ll find it popping up there shortly.
Two points on the entrepreneurial front, this week. First it was totally inspirational to be at the conference last week in Minneapolis. In very short order the participants took a bunch of ideas and built a (relatively) viable business. Very cool to meet such smart folks and rub elbows with them. I want to give big props to my good friend Dan Socie whose new line of embrocation products via Soigneur is just awesome. I also would like to thank Linda Patch who has really been a great mentor over the last few weeks / months as I consider what it means to be an entrepreneur and to help others.
Finally, an update on my latest project: Marathon Nation. Here’s the official lingo:
Inside Marathon Nation, we all work together to help every single one of us realize our running potential. What binds us together is a desire to train hard and smart. We want to be part of a supportive community that cares about each other in sport and in life, a community that provides opportunities to grow both personally and athletically. At the end of the day, the cutting edge plans and multimedia resources we use are only a small part of what makes the Marathon Nation experience so powerful. We are a brand new online community of runners who will redefine what it means to be on a Team.
If you are a marathon runner, or know one, Marathon Nation is going to rock your world. New training plans, specific guidance and a huge focus on training and racing Return On Investment. We are in the pre-launch phase right now, but we do have 100 beta invites and a race execution resource you can download right now.
Marathon Nation is also live on Facebook! If you are interested in making the most of your training time and think there’s more to life than just training (gasp!), you’ll find resources and camaraderie over here. Please Fan Us and tell your friends…maybe even consider following MN on Twitter!
Have a great weekend!
