AMPLA Adventures - Ironman Vineman


by Jayme Mechur August 07, 2016

We know that it can be hard to commit to buying a running shoe without trying it on, so we will be hitting the road and heading to races, expos, and run groups all over the West Coast.  The AMPLA team is committed to sharing in the love of running, community and the outdoors, and we want you to join us on our journey to help everyone run fast, smart and free.

*Don't worry if we aren't in your area soon enough, you can always order the AMPLA Fly online and we'll give you 30 days to test them out on your own, no questions asked!*

 

This past week, our team hit the road and headed up the coast to Ironman Vineman Most of us have been in the endurance space for a long time and know what a special event this legendary Ironman is, so there were a few internal battles over who got to make up the team for this one.  Rob, Erik Jessie and I won, and the A-Team was officially born.  

The maiden voyage for our trusty sprinter van Calliope (Callie, for short) was a huge success as she made the journey from Long Beach to Windsor and back like a pro.  A great book on tape, some entertaining podcasts, and more than a few coffee stops got us all through the miles pain free! 

Despite the 95+ degree temps, the expo was teaming with athletes and supporters, and we were stoked to be able to spend the week with such an inspiring crowd.  As expected, the triathlete community continues to be interested and supportive of new brands and new technology, so the reception to the AMPLA Fly was extremely warm.  We returned a few cases of shoes lighter and dozens of new friends richer.  No doubt we will be fighting it out next year to see who gets to make the trip again. 

Favorite Restaurant: Russian River Vineyards 
Rave Run: Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve.  
Best Discovery:  Kettle Chips eaten in a sprinter van are the best kind of Kettle Chips in existence. 

 

Until next time, remember that a good laugh and a long run are the two best cures for anything.
