Moose on the Loose Success! Plus, Post SHOT Show Recap on Back at the Lodge with Jim and Michelle, Part 1

A month later…(it takes that long to recoup from SHOT Show and catch up from the hectic time in Vegas)… Jim interviews me, essentially, on what I took away from SHOT Show this year. Plus, I attended the PGA Show immediately afterwards and I love comparing and contrasting the two.

Take a listen to our podcast freshly uploaded. If you have an iPhone, use iTunes. If you have an Android phone, Stitcher works best.  (And hey, we love reviews, in fact, we have a new sponsor on board – Camp Chef baby!!! So stay tuned on if you write a review, we are going to draw for free Camp Chef goodies!!!)

First, an update from Moose on the Loose 5K ran at SHOT – it was a blazing success!! So what if I was the last runner in…special thanks to Nick Pinizzoto and Melissa Bachman for running with me. I know it was a SUPER slow pace for Nick, so cheers to him for being a trooper. Melissa said she hasn’t ran since High School – and she could still beat me if she wanted to. That’s athleticism people.

And a world of thanks to our hosts, Cam Hanes and Julie McQueen. Julie stayed back at the finish line to make sure everyone was hydrated and received their free Mtn Ops goodies (thanks Julie!)

A few pics from the event:

I estimated about 60 runners at the inaugural event

Special thanks to Under Armor for giving a pair of Fat Tire Boots to the first 30 finishers. Plus, Mtn Ops was there with waters and refreshing energy drink options for us to stay hydrated.
