Race Report: 2013 Leona Divide 50 Miler

I did it. First 50 miler in the books!

Hello, my name is Ethan Newberry and I am an Ultra Runner. Hot DAMN, I’ve been waiting to say those words for awhile now! After running (we’ll just call it “moving”) this race, I feel comfortable saying them and damn it feels good to get it out there. The Leona Divide 50 Miler was my very first 50 miler race, my first run longer than 32 miles, and it gave me a taste of what […]

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 […]

Race Report: The North Face Endurance Challenge 50k

The North Face ECS 50k Championships

This last weekend, caked in mud, sweat and tears, I completed my very first ultra marathon – something I NEVER thought I’d be able do if you asked me a few years ago. This wasn’t just any ultra, this was the insanity that was The North Face Endurance Challenge Championship 50k race in the Marin Headlands of San Francisco. By now, some of you may have heard the stories, the gossip, and the legends of […]

Review: The La Sportiva Crosslite 2.0

Screen shot 2011-06-24 at 8.18.45 PM

Here is the GingerRunner.com review of the La Sportiva Crosslite 2.0. After wearing them for a considerable number of trail runs on all sorts of surfaces, I stand by these shoes as a great addition to the trail runner line-up. They are light, sturdy, rugged as hell, and simple. While there are a few problems (laces, stiffness, height) they are outweighed by the shoe’s ability to adapt to different trail running conditions. From the hard […]

Twas The Night Before A Marathon…

Bib Number Vancouver Marathon

Twas the night before a marathon, and all through the house; Not a carb left uneaten, not even the giant pile of spaghetti, stacks of toast, or bagels with peanut butter. It’s true. It’s now the night before the Vancouver Marathon and it’s time for our last pre-race “meal” (read: not a banana). As the marathon nerves creep in (don’t worry, still converting them to fuel!) I can’t help but reflect on the road that gets a […]

Review: Hydrapak “Selva” Hydration Backpack

Hydrapak Selva

PRICE: $74.99 Long gone are the days of having to lug water bottles around with you on trails or stashing fuel in bushes on long training runs. There’s been an onslaught of decent hydration packs on the market for the last few years, and even more recently some packs built with the ultra runner/trail runner in mind. The Hydrapak Selva is a decent addition to the fray – despite being primarily an off-road cyclist product […]

Review: Organic Honey Stinger Waffles & Energy Chews

honey_stinger_logo_9gp9

So I’ve been on a quest to find the best balance of nourishment during my training runs. As I increase my weekly mileage, I’ve needed to find the perfect recipe of calories, proteins, and liquids to offset what I lose during those hours of exertion. Now while I feel finding the perfect blend of products will be an on-going process for me during the course of this year, I am finding certain ingredients I can tolerate and I […]
