Inspiration Page

Now that The Road is a year old, I feel like there is an obligation to grow a little bit.  So I'm going to add a page to the blog, and I'd like your help. 

What I'd like to do is post a collection of short stories, inspirational quotes, mantras, anecdotes, words of wisdom or anything else that helps you with your training and/or life in general.  I think we can come up with a pretty awesome resource.  E-mail me at 17281posse (at) gmail.com and send whatever you'd like posted (I'm thinking +/- 50 words, but whatever) plus a small photo (optional).

But wait, there's more!!  Anyone who submits something in the next 2 weeks (up to the first 50 submissions) will get a brand spankin' new "The Road" t-shirt design absolutely FREE!!!  So when you make your submission, send me your t-shirt size (unisex XS-2XL) so I know what to have made.  I reckon I'll be able to mail the shirts out in about a month.


I hope you guys want to get involved.  It's not like you don't have cool things to say everyday, so this should be a piece of cake.

I will eagerly be watching my in-box....

Dibs on Jon Blais' poetry, it's by far the most inspiring stuff I've read. (Besides The Road, of course.)

Nice! Is it the same type of shirt as the "Free Yourself" T's? That is easily the best quality T that I own. Very comfortable as well!

Ok, time to break out the Ricky Bobby quote machine!

For Jeff- Ricky Bobby: Here's the deal I'm the best there is. Plain and simple. I wake up in the morning and I piss excellence.
