Well, I did it! Dedicated 4+ months to my life to training during the cold New England winter, stretching, yoga-ing, eating well, hydrating, and not drinking much booze.. and it all paid off! I finished the Eugene marathon in 3:29:39 .. which means beating my previous best time by 20 minutes, qualifying to run the Boston Marathon (this was my first time trying for it! The qualifying time for a woman my age is 3:35:00), and running faster than I ever thought I could. Race day was pretty darn perfect, and I couldn't have imagined a better outcome. Hard work really does pay off, and I truly can't wait to start training for Boston 2014.

Excited to announce a small spring collection of bags made from 1960's era uncut bandana fabric! (You can see the length of fabric in the last photo). We were so thrilled to uncover this material .. never come across something like it before! And thankfully there was enough to make about 10-12 bags. The pattern on each bag will vary, but it will incorporate the two patterns seen above.
We have another small collection coming within the next week or two .. came across a pile of a very spring-y striped fabric that will hopefully make 5 or 6 bags .. photos and more info to come!

If you're looking for one of a kind Forestbound bags don't forget to take a look at the Three Potato Four online shop! There are still a few nice ones available there.
Keep your eyes peeled for some great bags making their way to the shop next week. We just found some incredible 40+ year old fabric that's going to be used for a special collection of spring bags (think color & print!). The collection will be limited to 6-10 bags and will be available in the online shop late next week. More details soon!

Thank you so much to all who purchased our special edition for Of a Kind - all 50 of them sold pretty darn quick!
And now, finally, we have some time to focus on restocking the online shop which I know has been pretty bare these past few months .. but we're slowly restocking. I've made and listed at least one new bag a day for the past few days and will continue to do this next week. So check back often! Also make sure to follow us on Twitter b/c we always update there immediately after a bag is listed.
In non-Forestbound news ... I think this is the most anxious I've ever been for spring. Well I most likely say that every March, but marathon training during the winter has given me a new appreciation for long days and temperatures over 20 degrees. Can't wait to get out to Oregon in 6 weeks to run the Eugene marathon and see lots of good pals. My ideal way to kick off spring!
