I’ve started to round up sponsors for my North Pole Marathon run. The first one is Pixie Mate, a local Boulder company that makes an awesome specialty drink based on Mate – a South American tea that’s loaded with antioxidants as well as more fun loving caffeine than tea (but less than coffee).
I met with the founders – T.J. McIntyre (a swimmer) and Duane Primozich (a runner) in their office above Rudi’s near Hwy 36 and Table Mesa. They’ve got a rocking business going – powered by a bunch of Mate drinks. I’m been enjoying various flavors of Mate’s for the past few days and am hooked.
We’ve got some fun stuff planned together, including providing a bunch of Mate for the race participants (I wonder if I’ll be the first person to ever drink a Mate Latte at the North Pole?)
