July 12th 2017 marks the 200th anniversary of Henry David Thoreau’s birthday. Had medical sciences advanced to the point of keeping people alive for two centuries two centuries ago, he’d still be with us. Alas, they had not. Among his numerous notable publications, the American writer produced Walden: Or, Life in the Woods, an piece that argues for the importance of spending time away from civilization in the natural world. So, in honor of the ideals of Thoreau’s work and an added incentive to get outside and enjoy the trails this summer, we have one free pair of the Saucony Peregrine 7 that we are giving away for free!

“We need the tonic of wildness … At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods
