Market Life

For the last few Sundays the alarm has sounded a little after 4 am. Unlike the Saturday wake up call to grind out the 35K River Loop, the Sunday alarm trumpets the call to arms for the Market.

The story goes back to October last year ..... the day after running the Columbus Marathon, flying back home to Australia with lengthy stops at Houston and LA before touching down in Brisbane where the date had mysteriously moved along a couple of days. This gives plenty of time to contemplate the navel (after picking the lint out) and for planning goals for the future. It was at this time I gave birth to the notion that importing and distributing from the US would support an extravagant retirement strategy, eventuate into a self supporting workfree future and to top it off provide fully deductible world travel. Perhaps running a marathon and spending uncountable hours on a plane with free bar service was to blame.

So here we are 5 months later after regular correspondence with the inspiration and absolutely adorable Beth Powers embarking on the promotion and selling of a small stock of what we hope will change the face of running fashion.

So far the results have been slim .... insert no sales except from a friend. But fear not ... we are not discouraged although the original targets have been scaled down by a minuscule amount.

And we even opened an Ebay Store so if you excuse me I think there might just be a queue of like minded individuals who want to get into my funky tights.

You'll have to let us know what markets you are at and we can all hang out at the stall like a rent a crowd.
