GEAR WE LOVE:
ENO Upcycled Dog Collar & Leash
by Eagles Nest Outfitters

Longtime ASJ supporter Eagle’s Nest Outfitters, the company known for high quality backpacking hammocks, is now making dog collars and leashes from upcycled webbing.

A true repurposing story, ENO’s dog collar and leash are made from leftover materials used in making hammock straps. Utilizing what was a 5-7% loss, the company has reduced their carbon footprint while making a durable and comfortable product for dogs.

“It’s always nice to reuse and repurpose materials that ordinarily would be discarded,” said ENO general manager Lane Nakaji. “And we love dogs.”

Two brothers who originally sold products out of their van started ENO in 1999. Today ENO hammocks are available in nearly 750 outdoor specialty stores across the nation including REI. For more information on the upcycled dog collars, leashes and hammocks, check out www.enonation.com.

Race the Rails 2019

September 7, 2019 • Ruth, NV
elynevada.net/2018/07/12/race-the-rails

The steam locomotive and the bicycle were both invented a little over ten years apart. Both changed the way we travel. Which one will prevail on September 7 at Race the Rails?

Participants will ride the historic steam engine, with their bikes, up to the mining town of Ruth, NV and the base of the Robinson Mine. At the sound of the train whistle, mountain bikers and road bikers race onto their individual courses to see who can get back to the depot before the train.

This is not a race against time or your fellow riders, it’s a race against one of history’s most powerful inventions! Mountain bikers test their speed and agility on a challenging ten mile course through the beautiful mountains surrounding Ely, while road bikers prove their speed and endurance on a 25-mile course along roads and highways in …

Q&A with Author and Athlete Mina Samuels

Mina Samuels, author of  Run Like A Girl 365 Days: A Practical, Personal, Inspirational Guide for Women Athletes, on running, women and transformation

 

Were you always a runner?

I started running when I was 27. That’s twenty-six years ago now. I had taken a leave of absence from my law firm career and moved from Toronto (I’m Canadian) to New York to study for my Masters of Law. I started running a bit. One day, in the law library, I was talking to a woman I was hoping to become friends with and she asked about my running. I said, “Oh, I run ten, three or four times a week.” She seemed more impressed than I

Climbing to an Intentional Life

Whatever you long for or dream about is within your reach – if you can extend your mental or emotional grasp to include it. 

by Dierdre Wolownick

The first time I found myself hanging forty feet above the floor in a climbing gym, I never imagined that such an unlikely position would become a regular part of my life. Or that it would lead to a personal transformation. 

I was 58, and life had battered me to the point where I was more than ready for a big change. The kid at the other end of the rope, my son Alex Honnold, would soon go on to become a household name. That day, he handed me a lifeline. 

As Alex lowered me I had a sudden realization: I had loved to climb when I was a kid, but I was a girl. I was supposed to wear dresses and behave
