Two constants in my adult life have always been running and music. They've overlapped and interwoven to a point where both are intrinsically and fundamentally part of who I am. I've been on dozens of tours with artists we work with all around the world, and I always make it a point to go for a run after loading in or—if I'm feeling spry (rare)—getting up early and running before getting back on the road to the next gig. It's super exciting to run around a city you've never visited before and it's super fun to explore new places while running with friends!! Since the COVID-19 pandemic has taken all of that away, I've been thinking of ways to re-incorporate running, music, and the connectivity it used to provide back into my life.
I've started a running club. And as of right now, I'm still not even sure what the hell that means or will ultimately look like, but to start, I just feel like I'm craving an outlet for connection and motivation and I have a hunch I'm not alone. I've always found community in both music and in running, so I'm hoping to help foster more of that here with this club. The purchase of any Running Club merch (like this shirt) grants you lifetime access to the club. In some far-off post COVID world, maybe this means meetups and running groups and in-person things, but for now, Running Club membership includes:
a two-inch "Topshelf Running Club" button/badge
running club members-only collaborative Spotify playlist
running club members-only Discord channel
running club members-only Strava group
This shirt is black and features the Topshelf logo repeated on each sleeve, and the running club logo on the left chest area. The fabric is a sweat wicking, breathable polyester blend. Printed on Jerzees 21ML long sleeves.
