Review: The 2014 Newton Distance III & Gravity III

2014 Newton Gravity III Review

2014 NEWTON GRAVITY III Well, i finally get my sweet lil ginger feet into a pair of the 2014 Newtons and am pleasantly surprised after that whole Newton BOCO AT debacle. These shoes return to what I know and love about the newton lug system, even bettering an already solid platform by adding a 5th lug and adjusting the midfoot lug box. Really have to say I enjoy these shoes a LOT! The 5th lug […]


Review: The 2012 Newton Distance (Distancia)


I’m pretty stoked that I finally get the chance to review Newton’s brand new 2012 Distance Lightweight Trainer. This is a fantastic shoe from Newton and betters an already dynamite shoe from the 2011 line. I train in this shoe; I race in this shoe; I party in this shoe. There are a handful of changes to the 2012 model – which I cover in the video. While most of the changes may seem minor […]


Review: The Newton Distance Lightweight Trainer

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 […]


Review: The Saucony ProGrid Kinvara

Here is the review of the Saucony ProGrid Kinvara. After running in the shoe for awhile, I do have to say that I like it and think it’s a fantastic reduced running shoe. The Kinvara does a lot of things well, but not everything right. As a hugely affordable entry into the reduced running shoe market, I would highly recommend the Kinvara. While I’d still choose my Newtons over the Kinvara, it represents a […]


Review: The Newton Gravitas

The Newton Gravitas

Here’s my comprehensive review of the Newton Gravitas. It’s a fantastic model from Newton, a relatively new boutique brand to the running world. With forefoot lug technology, these shoes strive to be the best for forefoot/midfoot runners hoping to better their stride, increase their speed and comfort. I love them. I’ve been wearing newtons for about 6 months now (this is my second pair) and I rarely find myself running in my other shoe options. There […]


Review: The 2010 Disneyland Half Marathon


I love Disneyland. Always have, always will. I have such a nostalgia for the park and all of it’s facets, that now that I live in Southern California, I haven’t gone a year without a Disneyland Annual pass. I probably attend the park 7-10 times a year on average. Yes, it has something to do with the crunch of the churros. Yes, it has something to do with Thunder Mountain Railroad. No, it has nothing […]
