Last week Leo Manzano, silver medalist for the 1500 meters in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, launched a new business model to support himself. He has been without a sponsor since November 2012. In order to continue running and training, Manzano decided to design and sell shirts. He has two designs right now and the first one already sold out.
Another running blogger (or is it blogging runner?) whom I discovered is Cait Chock. She is an incredibly talented runner (she was a member of the Nike Oregon Project before a tragic hit-and-run accident cut short her professional running career and you can read about her experience with Nike Oregon Project here) and equally talented artist. I found Cait’s blog while haphazardly browsing the internet for interesting and cool bloggers.
I adore Cait’s whimsical artwork along with her thoughtful writing. If you’re interested in checking out Cait’s work (and perhaps purchasing one of her great running shirts), check out her site, The Arty Runnerchick. If you’re a funDisney fan, particularly Disney Princess, you’ll love this “Life’s Better with Legs” shirt.
I also really love this Run Your Fortune shirt.
