Huntin’ In The Hoodies

I heard a rumor that somebody on the east side of the cascades doesn’t think there really are Conduct The Juices shirts.  That Soderlund didn’t actually take a shirt from AJW.  Well, not only are there t-shirts, but there are also a limited number of hoodies.  And tonight, MonkeyBoy and I went huntin’ in our hoodies.  Felt like Rocky Balboa training in Philadelphia, except we were running on Ridgeline trail in Oregon. Tapeworm took the picture because he doesn’t have a shirt yet.

So what’s huntin’ you ask?  A couple of years ago we were running at night on the roads in Eugene and were wearing bright orange and yellow clothing so we’d be visible to drivers.  We run by a fast road/track runner and without missing a beat he says, “You guys out huntin’ tonight?”  So now that’s what we call any night run.

There you have it.  Proof that there are Conduct The Juices shirts and little insight into the strange world of ultrarunning in Eugene.


  1. I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t know what they are talking about. Often I suspect there is a chance that yall are just way to cool. I did get the Georgetown reference, that reminds me… crap only 9 days?

  2. I may have misunderstood Hairclub’s post but to me Magnum refers to my standard Georgetown Hotel attire. It could also refer to the framed photo/painting that I believe is in lc’s place in Oregon. And, just so you know, I’m tapering for Karaoke!


  3. Do you guys really run in cotton? You do know, of course, that Cotton is Rotten…in fact, Cotton Kills! I don’t know how I ever survived my childhood filled with many sledding adventure, fully draped in cotton. Maybe I was one of the lucky few. Don’t risk it…you may not be!

  4. Mirco fibers are overrated. I’ve run my last 3 races wearing cotton(including Waldo 2007). 1)You just have to protect your nipples. 2)If it gets too hot, just take it off and wear it as a head band. I will race all season in cotton (yes, I do run races), in fact I searched long and hard to find the perfect cotton t-shirt to wear for this year. Do you know how hard it is to find a good beer shirt made out of micro-fiber???

    I found a classic, retro-vintage 1970’s Olympia Beer t-shirt, (remember Olympia?)– that’s my racing shirt for this year, while you guys are doing it in Cool, I’ll be cool in Kentucky running in Grand Rivers Midwest style representing the NW with my Olympia beer t-shirt.

    I know Craig really liked it when I wore my tight fitting Under Armor shirts, but I’ve given that all up for a good cotton beer shirt.

    Now, if I could just score a black hoodie…..

  5. @Cougarbait – Can you squeeze that sexy body of yours into a large? Send me your snail-mail address in a private email and I’ll mail you one. As a past and future guest poster on Conduct the Juices you have one coming. Yes, White Trash and lowercase are also getting one.
