What we love this week // Our booth partner at tomorrow’s Nature Valley Expo in Uptown has some major Moxie!
Team Moxie is getting anxious for the event tomorrow night in Minneapolis’ Uptown, the Nature Valley Criterium. In an .88 kilometer course that races around 6 tight corners, you can see some intense racing that goes from low speeds to high speeds in seconds. Elite riders from across the country, as well as some Olympic hopefuls, will whiz by only a few feet away from the audience so your job is to clap, cheer and be a rowdy and supportive crowd!
We will be present, just not at the front of the crowd – we will be sharing a booth with our expo partner Chicked, another amazing Minneapolis-based athletic company with major Moxie.
The act of getting passed by a
stronger woman athlete.
The woman who just passed you.
We love that Chicked is all about supporting women in the sports industry, professional or casually, and they aren’t afraid to call out when women excel in an event. Moxie agrees that often the competitive nature that is so prominent in a sport can sometimes cause new athletes to shy away, but with Chicked, it’s embraced and encouraged in a positive way. Women who excel are given recognition, giving inspiration to fellow athletes to excel as well. And I almost forgot, they have some great clothing!
Here is the original Chicked t-shirt; created especially for when you pass that group of guys on the trail on you bike or with your trail-runners on. And because we both are all for more girl-power, we teamed up and created a custom Moxie design together which you can find at www.chicked.com!
