Wow! We are so grateful to have so many talented people in our community! We reached out to the Gogebic Community College Welding program to help us with an old saw blade that we wanted turned into a sign. Sam Bratu and her instructor Gary Gouin gave us something even better than we could have imagined. Check this out! We’ve proudly mounted the sign on the side of our building ❤️

If you think running up @copperpeak is crazy...how about flying down it? 🤟

#Repost @jeffprovenzano (@get_repost)
I’ve always wanted to swoop down one of these😁 What a way to kick off the Red Bull 400 at Copper Peak in Ironwood, Michigan !!! It was equally as fun flying down it as running (a.k.a. Crawling 😜) up it. I am stoked I did both. When I found out I made it to the finals in the race I debated wether or not to run up a second time. It was brutal the first time, gave it everything and wasn't sure if I left anything in the tanks. Even though I was completely exhausted, I went deep to find the motivation and power to crush the hill for a second run. What an epic weekend with my team mates @miles_daisher and @chexmachine and the rest of my @redbull family!! .
