Review: StrideBox

Stridebox Review

First of all, this review is a little different than normal. StrideBox isn’t a product so much as it is a service that provides products. The idea – which has existed in other industries for awhile – is simple. The customer pays a monthly fee – in this case $15 – and is delivered a box of surprise goods each month. The question I wanted to determine was if the $15 box was worth the […]

Race Report: Ray Miller 50k

Enjoying the trail camaraderie!

How can one complain about a run when they were surrounded by a breathtaking ocean sunrise, rolling hills straight out of Jurassic Park, and brutal ascents followed by rollercoaster downhill singletrack. The Ray Miller 50/50 was a week ago, but the race was so beautiful, it’s been stamped in my brain (and my aching muscles) like it was this morning. This was my second ultra (The North Face EC 50k was my first) and despite […]

Review: Injinji Performance 2.0 Socks

injinji-green-hero

The new 2013 Injinji Performance 2.0 line of toe socks are AWESOME. I’ve worn my fair share of these foot-beasts and can vouch for not only their comfort, but their ability to get you through long races unscathed. I was hesitant about toe socks after a pretty bad experience with Five Fingers, but once you get them on and log a few runs with them, you’ll see what I mean. Also, with the new 2.0 […]

Review: Saucony Kinvara 3

still

This shoe is awesome. There are so many things that I like and only a few things I don’t. If you haven’t run in a Kinvara yet, I would absolutely recommend you try them on and taking them on some miles. While the shoes seem to break down early in their lifespan, the comfort, weight, and upper make up for it by delivering a road shoe that can get you through any distance. You can […]

Old Goals, New Goals: a Year in review

Ethan The Ginger Runner!

Yes, I know. I’m late to the pony race and am just now posting my 2012 “year in review” blog. I could give you the excuse that I’ve been crazy busy filming commercials, travelling through mountains, training, racing, working the world’s biggest electronics show (CES), and am prepping to head off to Sundance as a result of a short I made, but that’d be the easy way out. Instead, I’ll be honest and tell you […]

Review: Skora Form

Screen Shot 2012-12-18 at 2.44.27 AM

I love wearing the Skora Form all around in my daily life. While I’ve found the faults to interfere with the comfort of wearing them on regular long runs, I still find these shoes to be very comfortable for the day-to-day lifestyle as well as form/speed drills. I’m also not a big fan of the $185 price tag. However, they have a more affordable brother, the Base (which I have not tried). Have any of […]

Review: Brooks Pure Grit

Screen Shot 2012-12-11 at 12.58.53 AM

Let’s just say this about the PureGrit: It’s magical. I love so many things about this shoe. It does still have it’s faults, but they’re small and will not keep me from wearing these suckers religiously on the trails. In fact, I was so confident in this shoe, I wore it in The North Face Endurance Challenge Championship 50k race in the Marin Headlands during some of the worst weather they’ve had in the race’s […]

Review: La Sportiva Vertical K

Screen Shot 2012-12-07 at 2.28.53 AM

I finally got the chance to review the light and fast, La Sportiva Vertical K. This shoe was made for racing. It’s cushioned while maintaining a low and fast profile. While it does have it’s short-comings, I overall like this shoe very much and have really racked the miles up on them. If you get a chance, try on a pair for yourself.
