Happy Monday everyone!I hinted over the weekend that I had some exciting news, and I figure now is the perfect time to share it with you!
I was chosen to be a member of the inaugural 2012 OmniTen for Columbia Sportswear!
What does that mean? Well, to be honest, I’m not 100% sure just yet, but I am happy to explain what I do know. Basically, Columbia chose 10 peeps from around the country to test out and provide information on their new spring line. I had been communicating with them for awhile but I didn’t really know the extent of what they were thinking until I came home from work on Friday to a big ol’ box of gear at my front door! Talk about the best way to end a work week, right?!
Another iPhone fail. Sorry, friends.
There may be some potential gear testing trips in my future as well, but like I said, I’m still a bit fuzzy on the details (I do know that I just had to turn down the opportunity to go heli skiing. I may have cried over that one!)
I am, however, very excited
and quite honestly, I feel pretty honored.
I mean, for those of you that have been readers for a long time, I’m sure you understand how trying out new outdoor stuff is right up my alley! I love being outside and outdoor/adventure sports are my “happy place,” so to speak. My garage is a massive pile of gear from every possible sport, and a few of you might even remember how I have an entire shelf dedicated to all of my different helmets.
Now, if that’s not a sure sign of an outdoor sport lover, I don’t know what is!
Because of this, I am already sensing that Me + Columbia = Match Made in Heaven.
How do you feel about the outdoor sport world: love it or hate it?
I always assumed everyone loved it like me, but then I realized that A) That is just Colorado and B) Jillian Michaels on the Biggest Loser used to bitch like crazy when she had to do outdoor workouts!
How was your weekend?
