    Greetings Friends,

    Is it time for a new BRS slogan?



    The current BRS slogan is;"Changing the running world one odd look at a time." Barefoot runners are not the freaks. I sincerely believe we are the sane ones.



    "You've got what it takes." is encouraging and true!

    When shod runners have no idea what to think, I always say: "You've got what it takes." It is more profoundly challenging.

    What do you think of this?

    -Ever onward!

    Eric, in SE Michigan

    I love to run.

    I would say uninformed

    I would say uninformed weaklings run with shoes, and advanced runners with a brain run barefoot and are more efficient with their standards of running?

    I like to say, "You aren't defective."

    I appreciate your take on this, Eric, but Jason Robillard, co-founder of the BRS closed his very first post on "that other forum" with "Changing the running world one odd look at a time," and I liked it so much then, I remembered it, and asked him to let us have it here as our slogan. It says a ton, it's insightful, and anyone with the slightest funny bone will get that we aren't freaks. Sorry you don't like it.

    I would have to agree with

    I would have to agree with you TJ! I absolutely love the slogan "Changing the running world one odd look at a time." I can't wait to get my t-shirt with that slogan on it! It speaks volumes, especially while out running in a highly populated area. Many many odd looks.

    "You've got what it takes."

    "You've got what it takes." would look great on a tshirt.

    I love the "Changing the running world one odd look at a time" but I find it too long to wear on a shirt. And I would be afraid to offend defensive shod runners who could misunderstand it and think that I want to change them against their will. I'm amazed by the number of people afraid of the word "change".

    I like the slogan, but who

    I like the slogan, but who says we have to stop at one??!!

    " "Feet"...OEM running equipment since 4000AD."

    "Put the FUN in your run; Go BARE FEET on the street!"

    " 'Streaking from the knee down.' Legal in all 50 states."

    Like the Definition shirts: "Arch-Support: Oxymoron. Originated in the '70s. See also Plantar Fasciitis, Overpronation and Runner's-Knee." (This one needs work, but you see the direction...)

    I like the odd look slogan. But wouldn't mind looking at a few others.

    Thanks for the link TJ! I love a lot of those, and what better way to start off my morning than with a laugh! :) BTW... very nice job putting those together. That must have took a long time. Not sure when that was put together, but each year, we should pull new ones and add them.

    "Put the FUN in your run; Go BARE FEET on the street!", and " 'Streaking from the knee down.' Legal in all 50 states." Love them Johnny!
