Anyone who knows me knows that I have a great affinity for technical headwear and a great affinity for the great state of Colorado. It should come as no surprise, then, that I’m a huge fan of BOCO Gear.
This year, I’m happy to serve as a BOCO Gear Ambassador. I’ve amassed quite a collection of their technical truckers and running caps over the years, after all, and every hat carries a few treasured memories.
Maybe it was my first season of dedicated strength training with Beyond Exercise, which led me to finally break both the 4-hour and 3:45 barriers in the full marathon.
Maybe it was my first visit to Arches National Park in 2017 or Devils Tower National Monument in 2018.
Maybe it was my first-ever trail race: last June’s Leadville Heavy Half.
If growing up with the Indiana Jones films taught me anything, it’s that every great adventurer needs a great hat … and every one of these hats has seen an adventure. I can’t wait to see what memories I’ll make in 2019. I’m sure my hat collection will continue to grow with every adventure.
