Apparel Sale; Vibram USA CEO Video

A couple of brief weekend notices to follow up on some earlier posts ...

*
First is a reminder about the summer apparel sale going on at Wilderness Running Company.



Almost all of their shorts and tech shirts are on sale for at least 20% off, not including the additional 10% discount you get by using coupon code R&R10. So the least you will save is 30% - and perhaps more. C'mon, it's the weekend ... go shopping!

Second, I didn't even know there was such a thing as "The Raw Food World", let alone that they have an online TV series. Obviously I don't get around the Internet nearly enough nowadays. Anyway, earlier this month they somehow grabbed an interview (it sounds like they might have snuck in) with Tony Post, CEO of Vibram USA, with a preview of upcoming FiveFingers models. The reporters aren’t exactly Charles Gibson and Diane Sawyer - for starters, they keep mispronouncing the company's name - but the video does a nice job of showing Post as a pretty decent guy who is very dedicated to his product line.

They also managed to get a sneak peek at two anxiously awaited FiveFingers models: the Trek for trail running, scheduled for release this fall, and the Bikila for road running, target date February 2010. So if you're interested in getting a glimpse of those, or just want to look at the (much more casual looking than I would have guessed) inside of a CEO's office, watch the interview here:



Pretty cool stuff. I have to say, though ... by the looks of those two reporters, the interview doesn't exactly inspire me to take up raw food.

Umm, back to post-related comments...
I think you're right...they definitely snuck into that office. Great stuff!

Vibram has up until now been unwilling to formally announce or speak about the Bikila. I'm surprised to see Tony speak so openly about them now.

The raw foods movement has been big here for at least the last 7 years. We have a chain of restaurants that only serve raw foods and it's amazing what they can do with it to mimic favorite dishes, like pastas, pizzas and Asian cusine.

You'll also be happy to know, Donald, that your post on the Vibram "shoes" was a topic of conversation on our run yesterday.

Hey, Donald -- Did you see this piece in the NYTimes?
