So after a few years of sending them emails, and dozens of you tweeting at them, Altra finally agreed to send me a couple of pairs of their shoes for review! I am stoked to have the opportunity to try these zero drop, wide toe boxed shoes of magic. Not only are they one of the few shoe manufacturers that work with zero drop technology, but they’re fantastic at educating and promoting proper running form […]
I finally did it. After years of anticipation, emails from viewers, and reaching out to the manufacturers, I am finally able to test and review some of the most unique and anticipated shoes yet: The Hoka One One Stinson Evo, The Bondi B 2 and the Rapa Nui 2. Each of these shoes has it’s own character, benefits and flaws, so I’ll let the videos do the talking. I will say that I was hugely […]
2013 was amazing for me. After taking a nice long holiday break to let my mind and body reset, I’m back and ready to set some goals! Here are my running resolutions for 2014. In the comments of this video, let me know YOUR resolutions/goals for the year and let’s keep each other on track! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Hey, listen, I get it. We all turn into last-minute shoppers right before Christmas. Lucky for you, I’ve put together a list of 12 items that are awesome and easy last minute gifts for those endurance athletes that you know (and still need gifts for!). Enjoy!
So the Brooks PureDrift (http://runningshoes.com/mens-brooks-puredrift/nightlife-black-euro-blue-silver) has been out for some time now, but I’ve wanted to get my feet into it since it’s release. FINALLY, I have the chance to review them and while they’re a fun, fast shoe that really caters to light, efficient and fast runners, they have some issues that bug me. While the upper is soft, light and comfortable, it bunches in the toe box. While the toe box is wide […]
This is some of the most skilled road cycling I have EVER seen. Seriously. I mean, Road Bike Party 1 blew my mind, but the backwards, front-wheel, downhill wheelie??? Yeah. Fuck me with this video. Martyn Ashton brings along Chris Akrigg and Danny MacAskill as they rip up some local bumps. I can’t help but cringe every moment I expect those Colnago frames to crack. They’re obviously strong like ox! ENJOY!
It’s been awhile, but I finally put my feet back into some New Balance goodness. The best part about the 1010v2 (http://runningshoes.com/mens-new-balance-1010-v2/blue-yellow) is that I LOVE THEM! Seriously, they have everything I want and need in a trail shoe and hit the mark on all accounts. They are light, flexibile, have an amazing toe box, a comfortable upper, some protection underneath, and just feel nimble and awesome. The only negatives are that they could potentially […]
You have been so patient, my friends. After months of teasing, they are FINALLY HERE! I am offering 4 types of CapSacs for you to enjoy. There are 2 Limited Edition colors (Black and Teal) and 2 WICKED Limited Edition colors (White & CMYK - Sold Out). This is the first time I’ve used ebay for something like this, so please bare with me as I figure out shipping (which I imagine will be a cluster […]
This morning, I was greeted with an email in my inbox that all runners and running bloggers love to get: “Newton Running 2014 Trainers Offer More Pop Than Ever!” That’s right, there will be some huge improvements (that I am VERY excited about) trickling across the Newton shoe line. The main improvement is that of a FIFTH lug on the Speed and Mileage models (the Distance, Motion and Gravity shoes). HELL YES. As you can […]
After a lot of deliberation regarding which pack to get as my next review pack, I opted for the new Salomon 5L S-Lab pack. I couldn’t be more happy with my decision. This pack is PERFECT for those runners looking for something extremely light and minimal, though not lacking in the storage department. This pack is crazy comfortable, extremely nimble, fits like a glove, has plenty of room for multiple bottles, some layers, nutrition, a […]
