    A Fundraiser Nothing Short of Super

    A Fundraiser Nothing Short of Super

    Congratulations to everyone who ran the Superfund Super Run last night! What's the Superfund Super Run, you ask? A race organized by the South Brooklyn Running Club (SBRC) to benefit the Gowanus Park Conservancy, a grassroots nonprofit group devoted to cleaning up and developing the Gowanus Canal, Brooklyn's own Superfund monster. Runners enjoyed the epitome of a chill race--there was a start line, a checkpoint, and a finish line (literally inside the Pig Beach Bar), but the route you took from Greenpoint to Gowanus was entirely up to you. All you had to do was let the smells of ribs and burgers emanating from Pig Beach carry you down to the canal at Union Street. Props to SBRC, and congrats again for everyone who participated!

    Growing (Top 5 Run Club) Running Communities Through Sponsorship

    Growing (Top 5 Run Club) Running Communities Through Sponsorship

    Growing communities requires not just talking about or hash tagging them but actively contributing toward their success. By physically being present to support each other. On August 12th, we sponsored the prizes for the top men and women for an organisation's first 5K, the Top 5K Run Club. And we know that we can only grow the Bakline community when we are an active and genuine part of the running community.

    When Bakline launched its running line in July, we had several early adopters of what was effectively the new kid on the block, at least in the NYC running scene. We were humbled by the immediate support of the team and supporters of the Top 5 Run Club. They have been there for us time and time again. So when they asked us to sponsor their first 5K, we immediately jumped on board because we know a thing or two about being the new kids on the block. And in order to grow the your community, it requires hard work, a lot of passion and, where possible, a bit of sponsorship from the broader community.

    Conquering the Brooklyn Mile

    In our humble and non-expert opinion, the mile is one of the toughest races out there. Yes, there are certainly more physically grueling races that require a great deal of training and exertion. (Ever run a 100 miler, anyone?) And sure, the mile doesn't push the limits of your speed quite like the 400m can. But the mile is often the first distance that new runners use to anchor their understanding of the sport. It's pure and basic, but also cruel. There's no room for error in the mile.

    Don't Just Take the Bridge. Build It.

    Don't Just Take the Bridge. Build It.

    One of the beauties of running is how malleable it is to your needs. Some, for example, use it as a means of escape, while others as a means to connect. Last night’s Take the Bridge race was a prime example of the latter, and I was lucky enough to witness it in action. After what I can only describe as a flawlessly executed event, in her address to the post-race crowd at Bronx Brewery, the cofounder of Take the Bridge hit an important point about the structure of running culture. Speaking about her experience as a member of a running team, she mentioned at times feeling like no one crossed the boundaries between teams. How running in clubs could just feel...clubby.

    Find Your Starting Line. We have lift off.

    Find Your Starting Line. We have lift off.

    It's here! After months of research, design, and testing, we've launched Bakline's running line with the release of a spankin' new batch of athleisure apparel. Tees, tanks, and totes - all made to seamlessly transition from the track to the trails to brunch. Or to never leave the couch in the first place. You choose. 

    We have much more to come with performance apparel, a new site and expansion into new geographies (UK!!!). We have many people who have helped and supported us along the way. Two notable companies in this effort have been the guys over at Mile High Run Club and the entire staff at New York Custom PT

    As co-founder of Bakline and an avid runner for years, I couldn't be happier with our expansion into this dimension. So if you're out there and need inspiration to get involved in the running community, or just want to share in the conversation we hope to start and build over time, centering on that love for the open road -- give us a shot. Nothing will please us more than to reinvest the success of the brand back into the community.
