Review: Hoka One One Conquest

Hoka One One Conquest Review

I’ll be honest, I’m a fan of Hokas. After all these miles, I have found that I thoroughly enjoy the move into maximalist shoes – shoes that provide an extra amount of midsole cushioning. While I spend a lot of my time running in more minimal, lower drop shoes for all sorts of runs (technical trail & roads), I think rotating into a soft maximal shoe from time to time can benefit you in multiple […]

He calls it the Original Six Hundo Challenge. Running 6 100 mile races over the course of a few weeks. In a row. In one season. INSANE. We’re talking Old […]

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: Saucony Viratta

StillTemplate

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know how much I love the Saucony Kinvara 3. This shoe is Saucony’s response to a more minimal, zero-drop, cushioned version of the Kinvara. The question is whether it lives up to the hype. Well, all-in-all, the shoe is pretty dynamite, but not without it’s faults – and the faults are make or break for me. While it is an extremely light, zero-drop shoe with an amazingly comfortable […]

The 2013 Boston Marathon

A sign seen at mile 20. My new motto.

So it’s been 1 week since the tragic events that took place at the finish line of one of the most prestigious marathons on the globe. While we’ve had some resolution, I still find it all difficult to swallow and seek appropriate answers. My heart and thoughts continue to go out to all those affected by this senseless act. I also acknowledge just how awesome the running community has been in the wake of this tragedy, coming […]

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 […]
