NEW SHOE FROM NEWTON: 2013 Newton Energy NR

The New Newton Energy NR

Well, the announcement just came through my inbox and I have verified that it’s true, Newton has announced a new shoe to their line-up due July 17th. They are calling it the Newton EnergyNR. Well, I can say without a doubt that these excite me. I’m only going off of the small press shots that they’ve included, but the shoes have the 5 lugs I’m familiar with on the MV2 (and that I like), they also […]

Review & Giveaway: Salomon XA Skin Pro 10+3 Hydration Pack

salomon xa skin pro

This pack is awesome. While it fits more like a vest (which I’m glad to see is the new general trend in hydration packs overall), the XA Skin Pro 10+3 pack has quite a few bells and whistles that take this pack to the next level. I’ve been playing around a lot with various hydration systems and so far, this one is my go-to for the long runs. I’ve managed to stick pants, a jacket, […]

OFFICIAL: I will be at the 2013 Boston Marathon w/ Newton Running!

2013 Boston Marathon

Guess what? I’m GOING TO THE 2013 BOSTON MARATHON! I honestly cannot believe it and am excited beyond belief. Here’s what’s up: Newton Running contacted me recently and proposed the idea of partnering up, travelling to the Boston Marathon, and creating cool video content for everyone to watch while we’re there. Wait, SAY WHA? They have been a fan of my videos for awhile (and I’m obviously a fan of their kicks) so they thought […]

Review: Brooks Pure Grit 2

still

It’s no secret how much I love the Brooks PureGrit 1. Despite that shoe having a major traction flaw, I still consider it one of my favorite trails shoes – especially for the dry socal trails I run on. When the PureGrit 2 was released, I was stoked to learn they almost certainly addressed all of our traction concerns. Unfortunately, that’s not all Brooks changed. A stiff outsole, a hefty upper made of thick and […]

A Weekend Of Adventure: Training for Leona Divide 50miler

AdventureWeekend

This last weekend was packed with SO MUCH awesome! If you didn’t know, I’m currently in training for the Leona Divide 50 miler (my first 50 mile race, YIKES!), so I needed to pack on the mileage, push my legs through some serious pain, and most importantly, have fun in the process. First, I got to run an unsanctioned marathon with my buddy Colin (@RunWicked) down in Palos Verdes. I Couldn’t ask for a more […]

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 […]
