New Bumper Sticker Contest!

Time to freshen up the MDRA Bumper sticker collection. Starting today, July 12th through July 30th we will have a contest for the two best slogans to be used on bumper stickers to promote MDRA.

The last winning slogan was good for alot of smiles and chuckles at the Grandma's expo, "I can run faster than your honor student!" other recent popular slogans were:
"get your run on......"
"I'd rather be fartlekking" - the all time most popular.

So get your thinking caps on and come up with something clever. The winners gets a fabulous prize pack of: A MDRA running hat, singlet and jacket!
