Review: Newton Energy NR

StillTemplate

I am all sorts of stoked on this shoe. The Newton Energy NR is a fantastic shoe and I might go as far as to say it’s one of Newton’s best shoes yet. There are a number of reasons for this. The 5 lug system, the stable forefoot platform, the soft EVA cushioning, the midfoot rubber plate, the transition, the comfy upper, and the overall long-distance comfort of this shoe make it awesome. If you […]

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 […]

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: 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: Hydrapak SoftFlask

Screen Shot 2012-10-27 at 4.07.25 PM

I got the chance to review the convenient and innovative HydraPak Softflask. It’s a simple, yet innovative device that allows a runner to carry multiple servings of gels in a single container without the heft or volume of a hard flask. It conforms to your hand or waist belt and adapts as it gets emptied. I love it. Click to watch the review above and don’t forget to subscribe to my youtube channel! (CLICK HERE […]

Race Report: The 2012 Big Sur Marathon

big_sur_half_marathon

I may have whispered the word, “Wow”, to myself hundreds of times in a 4 hour time-span. It was pretty much the only way to sum up my 2012 Big Sur Marathon experience. I mean, when you have 26.2 miles of rugged cliffsides, breathtaking ocean-views, quad-slamming hills, and brutally canted California coastal highway between the start and finish line, you’re pretty much guaranteed of loving every second of the run. This marathon did not disappoint. […]

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 […]

Review: The Newton Distance Lightweight Trainer

Screen shot 2011-10-05 at 2.01.59 PM

I finally get a chance to review my Newton Distance Lightweight Trainers. This is my go-to trainer and the shoe I’ve run in the most. In fact, I just ran the San Francisco Marathon in this shoe. It’s fantastic for forefoot runners, or those who are further along in the process of natural running. If you’re looking to START forefoot running, I would recommend looking at the Gravitas or Sir Isaac from Newton before this […]
