Being a Brand Ambassador; points to consider when applying

As we near the start of March, most if not all Brand Ambassadorship have been awarded. There are a few outstanding that will come early Spring but your Twitter and Instagram feeds should be filling up with hashtagged messages as should Facebook and blog posts.

I was very lucky this year to be on the TrainerRoad and Headsweats rosters for the second year and to have been added by SkratchLabs as a Taste Agent. In addition I am super lucky to continue to be a shoe reviewer for Saucony.


With this in mind I thought it would be helpful to put together a crib sheet with some helpful points to consider;

  • Use the product. This is kind of obvious but sometime the obvious things are missed! There is a big difference from being a product reviewer and a BA. As an Ambassador you are expected to (depending on the Brand’s criteria) evangelize their products both online and in real life. If you actually use it this is easy, much less so if you have no idea about it! Using it really means using it, documenting it and then telling everyone what you did!


  • Understand the difference between a Reviewer vs. Ambassador. As a reviewer you need to be impartial and factual. I have written over 100 reviews of products either sent to me or purchased by me (it’s about 50/50). When something  and when it works for me I say that and when I don’t I say that too. Typically you are reviewing something new to you, a new product that you haven’t used before. As an Ambassador, see above.
  • Avoid conflicts. Again pretty obvious but worth stating. You can’t (usually) be an Ambassador for competing products. Clif vs. PowerBar is an obvious example. You can of course review both products as a Reviewer.
  • Be Social.  Social Media, love it or hate it it is here to stay. These are some specific tips;
    • Blogging. Back in the day when I started blogging Facebook, Twitter and Instagram didn’t exist! I carried a real camera and had a phone that was just that…a phone! Bloggers left comments on each others post and you had a blogroll of like minded people. Eight years on Blogging is pretty old school but they do serve a good purpose for long form writing. 
    • Twitter and Instagram. Unlock your accounts, nobody is not going to see anything if you account is locked. Twitter is basically a link farm these days and Instagram is heading the same way but it’s what people use so it’s time to be a bit less private!
    • Facebook. Personally this is locked for friends only, and I am sure they get sick of my recipes and shoe reviews but I am constantly adding new friends!
    • Overall you have to be comfortable using it and you need to have a presence. By presence I mean a following. You need to be what is considered an influencer this means having the ability to some sway or be able to persuade peoples choices based on your evangelism!
    • From a practical standpoint try to have the same name across all accounts, “QUADRATHON” is a throwback to a Nike+ challenge that started in 2006. You can read more here about it. I use the same name across all of my accounts, Google it, I have 3 of the top 5 search results. Having different names across all your accounts is confusing!
    • Hashtag. Find out what hastags you need to use and then use them. Once you start most Phone apps remember them so that makes things easier! If you can’t remember them create a note on your phone and then just copy and paste into your posts.
    • Find out the accounts of your Product, follow them and tag them. Most Brands make this a must but you should be doing that at every opportunity.


  • Getting an Ambassadorship is just the beginning! That initial giddiness of receiving the Congratulations email is just the start of the journey. The next 10 or so months are yours to fill with tweets, tags and posts, putting miles on shoes, sweating into clothes, scoffing kitchen creations. You have every weekend to fill with long runs rides or swims and at the end you get tell everyone about it!

So there you go some thoughts, if you were selected this year as an Ambassador congratulations, if not you have 10 months to consider the above points.

Skratch Labs Recipe of the Week; Mushroom & Swiss Frittata

Another one from the Portables book. I whisked up a batch of these last Sunday and they are proving to be a good go to after an early swim or when you walk in the door and you’re famished!


  • 2 cup chopped mushrooms
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • ¼ cup coarse chopped parsley
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • ½ Swiss cheese grated
  • 1 teaspoon of celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • Dash of salt and pepper



  • Heat oven to 350f
  • In sauté pan heat teaspoon of olive oil
  • Over medium-high heat sauté onion, mushroom and parsley
  • Remove from heat and drain any excess oil
  • Combine the remaining ingredients in a medium bowel
  • Stir in onion and mushroom mix
  • Lightly grease muffin tin
  • Add mushroom slice and sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top (my step)
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until center firm (I baked them a little less, this makes them moister, but more fragile)

Wrap and refrigerate…assuming you don’t eat them all in the next 30 minutes!

SB9T Week 1

The last couple of weeks have been fairly light. I carried a twingy knee pain into the Bandit 50k and that meant that the week prior was kept to a minimum. Not so much a taper but more of a full stop. The race took more out of me than I thought so I took and very easy week the week after the race and really only started to get back in the game the following weekend.

So with that in mind it was very light with one run on the Sunday for 7.5 miles and a 17 mile bike ride on the Saturday.

My plan is to get back in the saddle next week and start to ramp up for Santa Barbara Nine Trails which is 5 weeks away!

Skratch Labs Recipe of the Week; Crispy Rice Omelet

This one is from the Skratch Labs Portables cook book. As with all the recipes this is very simple to make. If you’re planning to cook from either of the books it’s well worth investing in a rice cooker.

This is a handy recipe that can be used a snack or a side. Savory and flavorful and easy to cook and eat.


  • 1tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup of cooked rice
  • 6 eggs
  • 1.5 teaspoons grated parmesan
  • Coarse salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350f
  • Liberally coat skillet with oil and heat
  • Add rice and spread evenly. Cook until crisp.
  • Lightly beat eggs and pour over rice. Lift edges to allow egg to run under rice
  • Cover and cook until egg is firm in middle
  • Add cheese, salt and pepper
  • Finish in oven for 5 minutes

Voila…cut, share and eat!

Bandit 50k

Last Sunday I raced…well ran, well ran and walked the Bandit 50K. It was a long hot day in the sun and somewhat humbling day! That said, and of course with hindsight, it was a lot of fun and a good challenge.


This is the first time I have run this race and this was the first time on any of the trails that made up the course. Despite being only 20 minutes’ drive away it was just one of those things that I have always headed to the Backbone/Santa Monica Mountains to the west and not to any of the hills to the east.

Becca and I were able to pick up our numbers the day before at the Race Director’s house. Despite this low key approach the race organization and communication was great. Clear instructions in the Race Letter from the RD in the preceding week set the stage and all the remaining questions we had were answered at the pickup. A briefing over the course, a great technical T-shirt and even a wristband with the RD’s cell number were provided. Best of all; some homemade yummy treats!


The morning of the race we were parked well in advance of my 7am start (Becca was running the 30k and started at 7:30). The race start also had a packet pick up and even same day registration. There was party atmosphere. We caught up and said hi to some folks we had met online. There were actually four races, 6k, 15k, 30k, and the 50k so there was a smorgasbord of runners with lots of gear, some gear and no gear. With a drop bag, my Ultimate Direction pack and a handheld I fell into the lots of gear category!

While the morning was cool it was far from cold, the temperatures has slowly been climbing through the week and Sunday was forecast to be the hottest day with temps up around 80f. Not hot by SoCal standards in general but plenty hot when you have actually had a winter like we have!

With five minutes to go I took up a space behind the start line and waited until the 3, 2, 1 Go! Without much fanfare we started. The first mile was actually a parade lap and we ended up running around and back through the start. This was a good thing as it gave us some semblance of a warm up. After the first mile we followed the trail out of the park, up under the 118 Freeway and started up the first climb.


The first climb had some shade from the sun which had yet to rise above Rocky Peak. There wasn’t much if any running done here, it was steep and most people just set in for the climb. At the top there was a water stop, not really an Aid Station. I blew past this one and headed onwards. The first real Aid Station came at M5.6 I was carrying everything I needed and so I just carried on, passing a few folks who had stopped.


My goal was, as with Calico was a sub 6:00, failing that going sub 6:30 which was the predicted time. With the heat it was going to be a challenge from the get go but I kept my pace conservative and made sure I was drinking plenty of Skratch on the way. My UD pack contained ice water and I was topping up my handheld and adding Skratch powder as I went. The climbing had started out as single track but once it started to level out it widened to double track and was pretty rough with a lot of rock under foot. There were several more ups and downs and then finally good section of downhill single track that contoured around the backside of the hill. Here I could catch my breath and get my HR down Most of this section was also in the shade and this was the last section that had any real shelter from the sun for the remainder of the day. This lasted for about 4.5 miles where we popped out into a residential street.

I was with 3 or 4 other runners and there was no direction markings so we followed our noses until we came to a sign stuck on a car and turned off onto a side street which took us to the next Aid Station. This section was a little confusing but I managed to stay on course. Experience has taught me in the absence of turn left or turn right signs just keep going!


This AS had our drop bags and as I didn’t need anything from it I passed by only asking a volunteer to get a bandana out of my pack. We would pass through this AS again and then pick up the 30k course. The next section was specific to the 50k and was basically an out and back with a couple of climbs and descents. I had joked when I picked up my number that these looked like runnable rolling hills…well I got the rolling hills bit right…not so the runnable bit!

At the turnaround I made a point of stopping and get my handheld and pack filled with water and ice, it was warming up despite being only a little after 10am. That said I was at the half way point in just under the three hour mark so the sub 6:00 was still on the cards! To complete a 50k in sub you need to run 5.2 miles an hour, that’s an 11:32 pace! Sounds easy right, in seven races I have managed it twice!

I reversed my way out of the out and back surprised by how many runners were actually behind me! I reached my drop bag which was just short of the 20 mile mark knowing I had roughly 8 miles of climbing and then a 3 mile descent. I was having issues eating solid food so I ditched the PB&J rolls in favor of the liquid Plum food sachets which were much more palatable. Again I filled my bottle with ice and water and headed out along a road. I also stopped to empty the crap out of my shoes, regretting not having bought some gaiters! The first couple of miles were a gentle up, I was playing cat and mouse with a girl who had passed me earlier and was resorting to run 20 steps walk 10 as best I could. I pulled out the bandana and wetting it tucked it under my hat in attempt to cool me off. Around Mile 24 the trail turned right and turned up kicking up the incline. There were 4 or 5 of us in the section all jockeying places, including some random hiker! Eventually one of the guys pulled away and I couldn’t keep up but I managed to keep ahead of the rest, until I had to stop again to empty my shoes!

Ahead on the peak I could see a flag waving in the gentle breeze. As I slowly got closer and closer I could hear the whoops from the AS folks. Finally I closed in and was asked what flavor Ice Pop I wanted? Never has frozen sugar water tasted so good! There was a short descent and then another climb to the last AS proper where I filled my Headsweats Looudmouth Cap full of ice cubes and put it on my head!. This final section was rolling uphill and seemed to last forever but in reality it was maybe a mile. The 118 freeway came into sight. From here I knew it was going to be 3 miles mostly downhill albeit in a toe jarring stutter step.

Finally I was back under the freeway and there was less than a mile to go. I passed two girls running the 30k and then looked over my shoulder and saw the girl I had passed previously who had been creeping up on me. I gritted my teeth and got on with it to the finish which finally came after a cruel loop around the starting area!


I finished in 6:46 was 55th OA and 18th in my AG.

Becca took some finishing photos and I found a chair in the shade and collapsed. I was spent. Becca offered me a coke and asked did I want any food, I couldn’t even talk for the next 10 minutes. I had to cool down and get my HR down. After a while I was able to stand up and downed another can of coke. There was no point hanging around so we didn’t.

Post-race it’s always easy to say I should have done this or that. The reality was that I gave this race a really good go. Looking at my HR data I was in Z4 for 4:30 and Z3 for over 2.11 hours. That leaves 5 minutes…2 of which were spent taking a pee or emptying my shoes.

The issue with my knee didn’t go away as such but I only ran on it once, on Monday, and the just eased up off of it for the rest of week, it still didn’t feel 100% on Sunday morning but it wasn’t getting any worse and I could have always dropped down to the 30k in the end it was a non-issue for 95% of the day!

Once home I realized the number I had done on my big toe. A nice blood blister was developing under my toe nail and it was as sore as hell! I cut my toe nail back and that released a lot of the blood (and pressure) and now it seems much better!

IMG_3037FullSizeRender (1)

Overall it was challenging fun day, without any heat training I suffered but then so did everyone out there! If you’re looking for a fun well organized race that’s local so the Conejo Valley this would be a great choice! As with any race the volunteers are crucial and there were plenty out here cheering and manning the Aid Stations. The Stations were well stocked and crucial on a warm day had ice and plenty of it!

Looking ahead I have 5 weeks to Santa Barbara 9 Trails. That has roughly twice the elevation of this race and is only 4 miles longer. There’s not enough time to really get a major hill work in, but I can get a pair of shoes ½ bigger and some gaiters!

Onwards…and upwards!

SOB50k Wk 15

A very light week as my knee was playing up.

Monday. 6 miles easy in new shoes from Saucony to try, the new Triumph ISO


Sunday. Bandit 50k

Told you it was light!

This is the last “SOB” switching it up to SB9T for the next 5 weeks!

Running Voodoo!

I am not really superstitious it’s just not something I put any stock in. There are of course times when I question that and there are occasions when you are just made to go hummm!


This would be one of them. Consider this;

  • Sean O’Brien 50k last weekend, cloudy, rainy, cool
  • Bandit 50k this weekend, clear, sunny, hot
  • 12 weeks of training (post Santa Clarita Marathon), to SOB and no injuries, niggles, nada
  • 13 weeks of training (post Santa Clarita Marathon), to Bandit right knee just not co-operating! Feels blocked, clunky, sharp pain sometimes!

WTF is with that!

Skratch Labs Recipe of the Week; Leftover Rice Pudding

As written about last month I became a Skratch Labs Taste Agent. As part of that I wanted to share some recipes as I make them from the FeedZone and Portables cook books. To kick that off I am going start with Leftover Rice Pudding. This is actually a well-worn staple in our house. I am a big fan of rice and having a rice cooker makes it so easy!

It’s something I have used as a pre-race breakfast but it’s also something that most of the kids will eat too…well you can’t please all the people all the time! It’s also something that can be flavored to taste and even used as a dessert!


  • 2cups milk (any)
  • 3 eggs yolks
  • 2 cups rice (cooked and cooled)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 2 tablespoons dried nuts/fruit
  • Ground spices (cinnamon, nutmeg or allspice)
  • ¼ cup ground pumpkin or applesauce or jam
  • Becca makes an awesome Raspberry coulis!


  • Combine the milk and egg yolks in medium saucepan, gently bring to boil and simmer
  • Add rice, brown sugar and vanilla, stir and simmer till thickens
  • Add optional ingredients
  • Serve and eat!


Yup that’s it super simple and super yummy! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

SOB50k Wk 14

So last week was the week to bridge from unsigned up for Sean O’Brien to the signed up for Bandit and so I added in an extra week. This is how it shook out.

Monday 8 miles. First run since Calico50k, felt hard/easy, happy with result. 16th day in a row, Tuesday is a rest day

Tuesday Off!

Wednesday 4 miles. Felt harder than it should, early start, long day and late dinner catch up with me!

Thursday 8 miles. Nice little trail run in my new Saucony Peregrine 5s, left too late without a head torch and ran home in the dark!


Thursday. 7 miles. Another trail run. Found a little back trail that has an insane climb! 40% grade!


Friday. Off

Saturday 21 miles. Met up with some folks and ran nearly 11 miles with them and then ran another 10 by myself. This was very unplanned, as in I poorly planned it and instead of a pack and food etc. I basically ran 20 miles on a glass of water and a single serving of peanut butter! In all honesty I felt fine at the end albeit a bit hungry, not something that I would recommend but it was a low effort endurance Z2/3 kinda run. If you’re in Westlake Village, check out Joi Café, amazing vegan food run/co-owned by a buddy of mine! You won’t be disappointed!


Sunday. Easy ride and a 20 minute run to roll the running mileage up to 50 for the week.


  • Run; 6 runs, 50.10 miles in 7:42
  • Bike; 1 bike 16:85 miles in 1:00

This week is a Taper and then per my last post I am on a 7 week build to Leona Divide 50m!

When you need a Race and when you need an A Race!

Now seems like a good time to talk about this given the amount of shuffling that my race schedule has had in the last couple of weeks…perhaps months.

The original seeds of the 2015 were sown last summer. Coming off of an “interesting” day at Vineman. I decided to hang up my bike and go back to running. I laid out a 44 week plan that would get me to Leona Divide in April this would my A race.

Clearly 44 weeks for one plan is ridiculous, I know for a fact that I usually get burn out from a plan round Week 15/16. So the plan was periodized. It would be broken up into Race specific blocks of training and there would be milestones along the way. There would be races that were broken down into two types;

  • “a” Race; used to dial in things, get a benchmark, have fun. Always followed by a training day the next day.
  • “A” Race; a goal event, looking to do well/place. leave it all out there, all business, Always followed by a rest day.

So in the plan there would be build weeks and there would be rest weeks. One thing there would not be was constant training with no end goal and no definition where everything blurs into a big nothing. In my opinion Training is like cooking, you follow a recipe, if you decide to add a little of this and a little of that you end up with a brown mush that tastes like crap! Do that with a plan and you end up with list of results that look like crap too! So along the way the defined Milestones were;

  • Santa Clarita Marathon in November which I PRd at back 2011 this was “a” Race. A 13 week training block.
  • Sean O’Brien 50k in February, in addition to Leona Divide this was also tagged as an “A” Race. A 12 week Training block.

The rationale here was that the marathon was a distance stepping stone. There is no time correlation (my road marathon PR is 3:28, my trail 50k PR 5:49, 5 extra miles in over 2 hours!).

As 2014 came to a close and Santa Clarita was behind me Becca and I signed up for the Paramount Ranch 30k, a local relatively flat trail race and both had a good day, I placed fifth in my AG. This was a last minute event and was really only a substitute for the long training run that was already on my plan. Like Santa Clarita this was categorized as a race (not an A race). 2015 started and Becca and I signed up for the Calico 50k, again a substitute for a long training run and a good early benchmark for racing a 50k. Try as you might there is always a difference between training runs and racing runs! For me Calico also gave me a good mental checkmark that I was on track to have a good day come SOB which was 3 weeks later. It went well enough and I finished close to my goals, I allowed me to confirm some gear choices and dial in my fuel plan. But again this was “a” race, not an “A” race.

I am a big proponent of train on the terrain that is train where you are going to race. With that in mind I had trained extensively on the SOB50k course, it’s local and I had no excuses not to. I ran multiple 20 milers, a marathon distance run on it and even a self-supported 50k, finishing in the dark by the light of my iPhone! I dragged Becca out in the rain and the sun. It was nobody else’s fault except my own that when I came to sign up it had sold out. The race was actually yesterday, it rained a lot and from what I have seen it was a tough day out. The course is not easy but in my opinion it’s not super hard, of course that’s easy to say from my bed as I write this! There’s one big climb, it lasts about 4 miles, around M3 and of course you have to run down it again around M25 (for the 50k). There are other climbs too of course but this is the worst. The rest of it is a rolling, runnable trail.

With all the said I wasn’t in and so I had to move on. Luckily the Bandit 50k is the following week (next weekend as of this post). It really just means adding an extra week of training into the plan, that’s no biggie. The downside is I haven’t trained on the course at all, I haven’t even been to the park that the race is in, but that would have been the same as if I was travelling to a destination event.

What allows me to switch like this was the Periodized training, I have not been adding random stuff into the plan, things like “I felt like a beach run” or “decided to ride my bike today instead of…” or “my leg hurts but I still did…”. I don’t feel burned out, I am not injured, In fact it’s a rare day that I am sore. So with that I am able to add in another 50 mile week without any real issue.

So the Bandit becomes my “A” Race and therefore it’s time to bring my A game! But you know what, it’s running, that’s all, and let’s be honest I have done a awful lot of that in the last 6 months!

Bringing my A game to Plan B!

So way back when…well last year! Coming off of Vineman in the Summer the rest of the year plans slowly crystalized into a running, then trail running and then ultra running plan.

As I have already written about I forgot to sign up for Sean O’Brien 50k! Duh! I was waitlisted but then I heard this week that officially the race was sold out and I was out of luck! I was bummed…I kicked my trash can, twice I think, but really I had no one to blame but myself so then I kicked myself! I was bummed out. As I posted on Facebook


So with that confirmed,I  headed off to was my first stop…


I had scoped out the Bandit Race as a back up, it’s local but for one reason or another I have never run the trails there. It’s going to be a challenge, there is something to be said about being familiar with the course and I was certainly familiar with the SOB course. ultrasignup has a forecast feature and I am predicted to finish in 6:36. Given all the training I hope I can do better than that but it going to depend on the course and on the heat!

A day later I was signed up for this beast!


Again there was a predicted finish time. Mine was 10:24! WTF! Then I looked at the website and actually read the description;

imageOh well, I like a good challenge!

This is followed three weeks later by the originally planned Leona Divide 50 miler, so as you can see it’s a nice ramp up over the three least in distance! As for elevation its more of a pyramid!

Here are the elevation profiles;


Bandit 50k, 6464’ gain


Nine Trails, 12,015’ gain


Leona Divide 50m, 8796’ gain

Just to put these races in perspective, that’s 27,000’ of gain over three days, over half of what I have covered in the last three months!

As the rest of the year shapes up you can follow the plans here.

I am 8!


So that happened!

No fuss no fanfare…a bit like real life then!

Tour of Sufferlandria!

The Tour of Sufferlandria, a 9 day ride across the mythical land! I finished this last Sunday and was (kinda) glad it was over! It wasn’t that it was long it was that I hadn’t looked at, yet alone sat on, my bike with any real reason since Vineman last July. So it was really no surprise that by day three I was feel tender. Cardiovascular-wise I was fine, my heart rate was well within the right zones. Even more so as I had dialed back my FTP to 75% so as to not kill myself. The biggest challenge was really simply sitting on the bike! That said after Day 5 I was feeling better and by the end of the event my backside had acclimatized nicely!


The Tour started fairly easily and then ramped up as the week went on. Each day presented a new challenge; Time Trialing, Climbing, Sprints. Every day featured at least one video, several featured more! The longest day was just over 2.5 hours and the shortest just under an hour. With some creativity each stage lasted 50 hours. Each tour day is active while it's that day anywhere in the world. It starts at 12am Kiritimati time (UTC+14) and ends at 12 midnight American Samoa time (UTC-11). This makes each tour day last 50 hours and days overlap. Local time is irrelevant. It was with that format that Becca and I were able to get the first two days completed, run the Calico 50K on Sunday and then pick up on the bike where we left off.

I rode my using TrainerRoad who, as per last year, really put on an excellent show. They had created a mini website which logged your progress, and carried a daily DNF rate, this was approx. 40% by the end of the 9 days! Additionally they had secured a myriad of prizes for anyone who completed the Tour. Tour aside if you’re riding on a Trainer you should be using TR, I am lucky enough to be Brand Ambassador for them and you can read a couple of posts about the set up etc here, here and here. It really is an excellent and super easy tool that will improve your cycling with structured training and quality feedback!


The minions over at the The Sufferfest Headquarters were again raising money for the Davis Phinney Foundation and this year managed to raise over $100,000. There were a couple of new videos included in the Tour and some old favorites too. When I get a chance I will post a review or two.

Here’s The Rookie trailer, there is plenty of on-board camera action!

The Sufferfest & Team Giant-Shimano: The Rookie: Trailer from The Sufferfest on Vimeo.

Overall for the 9 days I logged just over 13 hours and 213 miles (with an extra 70 minutes and 20 miles for the FTP test) and a whopping 13’ in elevation gain!


It’s been a good kick start to my cycling for the year and while I am focused on trail-running the cross training will no doubt do me good!
