On Saturday I joined a group of Faithlife employees set out to repeat last year’s victory in the Bellingham Traverse, a multi-sport relay race.
Competing as Logos Bible Software a year ago, our 3:17:00 time was good enough for 1st place in the corporate division. So we entered this year with high hopes.
Not many people know, I ran last year with a diamond ring in my pocket.
My portion of the race—a 3 mile scamper through the trails south of town—started just a few blocks from the jeweler who was designing an engagement ring for me to give to my then girlfriend (now wife). I jogged over during my warm-up in an effort to surprise her, bought the ring, and ran with it through the race course. I’m still not sure if that helped or hurt our time.
This year we had a beautiful September day for racing with enough wind on the bay to convince the race official to shorten the paddle portion of the race by a mile. We improved on last year’s winning time by 4 minutes. But the field was much more competitive, and our 3:13:00 made us the fourth corporate team to cross the finish line.
Isn’t our team shirt this year particularly nice? The technical fabric performed great, and we got lots of compliments as we walked around town. So many in fact, we thought that you might like to have one too. It is the first piece of apparel we’ve created since Logos became Faithlife, and we went all out—technical fabric, athletic cut, and variations for men and women. This is an awesome shirt.
You can pre-order the Faithlife Multi-Sport Athletic Shirt with free shipping right now on Logos.com, and you don’t even have to run a race to get it.
