FAQ

Q: Is that what you do all day: RUN?
A: Wow, wouldn’t that be sad?  Don’t get me wrong. I love to run.  It’s turned my world upside-down, inside-out, and all for the better.  I created a whole blog just for running and, in fact, it’s all I talk about on this blog, on my TBR Facebook page, and on Twitter.  BUT, it isn’t my life. My life revolves around my loved ones, work, and other passions and, happily enough, running enhances all those other aspects of my life. I run to live; I don’t live to run.

Q: How can I get into running?
A: Do you have a pen?  Take this down:
1) Dust off those running shoes hidden at the back of your closet.
2) Put on socks, then shoes.
3) Step outside.
4) Run.
It’s as simple as that. Take it one step at a time. Start s-l-o-w-l-y. If you need support, I constantly blog about running groups or clinics. If you need coaching, download one of the copies of TBR Magazine with a directory at the back (some don’t) and there’s a list of running coaches and their numbers.

Q: I’m a race organizer, how can I submit our upcoming race?
A: You can go directly to our TBR Calendar page and submit your information there.  We’ll make sure to include the information in our calendars both online and in TBR Magazine for FREE.

Q: How can I advertise on TBR online or on TBR Magazine?
A: You can email me directly at tbr(at)thebullrunner.com

Q: Can you review my product?
A: I only accept products for review that are 1) relevant to this blog and for my readers, and 2) products that I would actually like and use. You may email me about your product and I’ll let you know if I will accept a product sample for review. BUT, please keep in mind that I reserve the right to write a completely unbiased and honest review of your product. If you cannot accept any negative comments, then don’t send your product to me.  I will also not accept payments in cash or in kind in return for any false advertising.

Q: Are you paid to post about products or services?
A: Occasionally, I accept payments in cash or in kind for blogposts, but these have not changed or influenced my opinion of the product or service and it never will.  I set up this blog to share my love for running, not to make money off of it. Everything I write on this blog is honest and unbiased. Beginning July 2012, I will include a Full Disclosure note at the bottom of blogposts that require transparency (e.g., my relationship with the advertiser or sponsor and if I received any compensation for the post).
