A Letter From Micki...

Hey MTN - Hope you are having a great summer!! John and I are racing The San Francisco Triathlon...well John is racing tntI am hoping not to be shark bait in the swim or a beached whale on the run...We are doing the race with Team in Training and John is an Honoree again for the San Francisco TNT chapter. Since we decided to do this last minute we are looking for a fast and easy way to get the word out to help get donations....

of course I thought of you and your website.

I know John isn't big on advertising or talking about his cancer but I was thinking maybe a Q and A from you on your website would be a positive way to promote our TNT fundraising...

Getting Championy...

logoK-Swiss is one of our site sponsors and as with all of our indispensable advertisers, we jump at every opportunity to be as obsequious as possible. We need them desperately and as long as they have butts, our lips will be puckered.

In truth, we have a totally "Rock n Roll" relationship with our advertisers. They enjoy fun and and a little outrage as much as we do. To demonstrate this, we'd like you to check out K-Swiss' new "Tubes" video. IT'S AWESOME. It stars that guy (Danny Miller) who plays George Clooney's little sister's fiance in the totally great movie, "Up in the Air," and he's a downright hoot! LINK
