Altra Ambassador 2.0

I received some exciting news over the weekend-I’ve been selected to be a brand ambassador for Altra again in 2015!

I was an ambassador with the company last year, and I’m really looking forward to waving their flag again this year. Honestly, I’m not sure why Altra chose me since it seems like all of their ambassadors are total bad asses (I think the term amBADassadors was floated around last year) and I’m just a slow guy trying to run a marathon in each of the 50 states. But whether they just needed a “token normal runner” or if they just got me confused with someone else, I’m excited to be back in the fold.

I had Golden Harper, founder of the company, on the podcast awhile back, and if you don’t know anything about Altra I’d definitely recommend you check out that episode. The story of Altra coming into existence is a good one that is highlighted by road trips, toaster ovens, and demand from their customers. It’s truly an incredible story, and well worth the listen.

If you ever have any questions or are thinking about trying your first pair of Altras, let me know. I’m happy always happy to help, even if the company fixes the glitch and I’m no longer an official ambassador!

The 2016 Olympics are the goal of Tyler McCandless. Yet he has found more success as a runner as he has focused less on running and more on some of his other endeavors.

Altra Ambassador 2014

Just a quick post today letting yall in on a little secret I’ve been keeping for a few days.

Altra-BadgeI’ve been chosen to represent Altra Running for 2014 as one of their Altra Ambassadors. In case you missed one of my posts or tweets about how much I love their shoes since I made the switch to Altras a little over a year ago, don’t worry. I’ll be promoting them even more this year, but it’s really only because I love the shoes and I know they’ve worked wonders for me and my running.

Being an Ambassador is nice, but I’d still be trying to talk people into trying the shoes regardless. If you’re interested in more info, just let me know or check out their website.

And with a little luck, maybe FitNiche would allow a couple of pairs to be sold in the store? Is that asking too much?
