Review: Brooks PureDrift

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 1.06.14 PM

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 […]

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: 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: Brooks Pure Connect

Screen Shot 2012-08-31 at 5.54.18 PM

BROOKS PURE CONNECT I FINALLY get to review the Brooks PureConnect. Its a dynamite reduced-running shoe with a smooth, fast, flexible ride. The BioMogo is super soft and the shoe fills that niche of low-drop and extra-cushioned shoe nicely. The shoe felt narrow at first, right out of the box, but actually running in them proved they do expand enough to be comfortable (those with wider sized feet, try them on first. I’ve heard the […]

Review: Salomon XA Smartskin Jacket & Superfleet Crew Midlayer

Screen Shot 2012-05-03 at 12.57.13 AM

SALOMON XA SMARTSKIN SOFTSHELL JACKET After putting this jacket through the Ginger Runner gauntlet, I’m confident in saying it’s a dynamite piece of gear. I was looking for something to wear on my runs during the rainy months, cold evenings, and early foggy trail mornings. Salomon has a huge variety of choices, all at different pricepoints and features, and this was the perfect choice. Good job, me! It has the right amount of weather resistance, light […]

Race Report: The 2012 LA Marathon

LA Marathon Logo

Let’s just say that this race taught me a thing or two in humility, perseverance, and outright pain & suffering. This was by far my worst marathon to date; but was easily the most important test of my will to finish and push through what I would only consider the impossible. In fact, it’s only now – weeks later – that I’m able to get over my pride, write about it and share my experience. […]
