Some Housekeeping:

I still got tons of stuff to give away!
Lots of Swiftwick socks, Squirrel’s Nut Butter, a variety of cool Tailwind Nutrition fuel, and of course a brand new and super powerful Suunto 7 watch. There might even be some surprises coming your way. Watch your mailboxes in the coming days! Any Rock Candy gear you ordered from us will ship as well!

We’re already scheming a new virtual challenge for this Winter – stay tuned!
