Hi Jesse,
I totally love your "Superblog" and I wondered if you would be interested in participating in the Search for the Ultimate Athlete. We are pleased to be able to invite you to join our team as a Track & Field contributor/ambassador. By joining the SFUA blogger network you become part of a focused group trying to determine who the ultimate athlete is and report on everything that goes into that process. I think your website would get some great exposure as well. We ask for contributions from you in the form of blog posts, pictures, videos, whatever! The theme:

* What does it mean to be the ultimate athlete?
* Is there really an ultimate athlete?
* Have you seen a T&F athlete who could be that great?
* As someone who blogs about T&F where do your athletes fall on the ultimate list?

Your contributions will be featured on our website, which will be heavily promoted as part of a thorough and ongoing online public relations campaign. Utilizing tools like twitter, Facebook, flickr we will make sure your content is quickly and efficiently distributed. We already have a number of very influential people involved, including professional mountain bikers and internationally recognized athletes and sports figures. As the program matures we will be able to offer incentives such as gifts from our sponsors and other items.
Please take a second to check out our website and think about being a part of our quickly growing community of people searching for the ultimate athlete. Feel free to contact us directly to discuss this opportunity further, our email is and you can call me at 503-703-6986.

Please to enjoy,
Keith Mason
