Review: yurbuds Inspire Pro & Signature Series

Screen Shot 2013-08-29 at 2.48.49 PM

I’ve been rocking yurbuds headphones for years now and can’t believe it’s taken me this long to drop a review for them. Perhaps it’s the fact I have just considered them a consistent piece of my running arsenal so I don’t really have to think twice about them. Luckily the awesome folks at yurbuds sent me a few pairs to compare so I was able to review some of their newer products as well as […]

Review: Trail Box Monthly Delivery Service

Trail Box Review

The fine folks over at http://trail-box.com sent me a couple of their monthly packages to check out. They are a service very similar to Stridebox which I reviewed earlier. You pay a small monthly fee and they send you a package full of surprise products geared towards trail running. Out of the two packages I received, I came to the conclusion that for $10/month (sometimes even cheaper) you get a decent amount of good stuff and it’s […]

Review: Patagonia Strider Pro Shorts

Screen Shot 2013-08-07 at 6.09.47 PM

This review is simple: These are the best damn shorts I’ve run in yet. They are amazing for races and training. TONS of storage (one back zipper pocket and two HUGE side pockets), they’re lightweight, breathable, and sport a solid waist band. Really the only downsides are the price and the fabric can be a bit abrassive at times. If you get a chance to try these shorts out, I HIGHLY recommend it! I now […]

Race Report: 2013 San Francisco Marathon (Video)

I RAN OVER A BRIDGE!

For the last 3 years, I’ve had the pleasure of running 26.2 miles through the streets of one of my favorite U.S. cities, San Francisco. 2013 is the first year that both my girlfriend, Mile Long Legs, and I ran the full marathon together so I was eager to share the experience with her. In years past, the course has always proved a significant challenge in that it’s hilly, windy, and crowded. This year, I […]

Ok, so here’s the deal. Pearl Izumi has given me the opportunity to giveaway a bunch of their awesome gear, including a pair of their kick-ass shoes.

One will receive running shorts, one will receive sun sleeves, and one will receive a cool Pearl Izumi e-motion t-shirt! How’s THAT for […]

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 […]

Review: Salomon Sense Mantra & S-Lab Sense Ultra

website

SALOMON SENSE MANTRA The Salomon Sense Mantra is an AWESOME shoe and has proved itself time and time again. When I first received the shoe, I didn’t think it would be up my alley, but honestly, it blew my mind each time I would take it out for a day on the trails. The shoe kept me nimble, protected, and fast on the trails. It features superb traction and the outsole has held up amazingly […]

Review: Pearl Izumi E-Motion Trail N1

StillTemplate

I love this shoe. It has pretty much everything I need in a trail shoe: comfort, traction, a solid and simple upper, flexibility, durability and a stable but forgiving stance. I think one of it’s most stand-out benefits is the shoe’s long-lasting comfort. I’ve put some serious miles on these bad boys and they still impress me. From the 10k+ foot mountains outside Los Angeles, to the rolling hills of the Santa Monica range, the […]

Gear: What I wore for my first 50 miler

Heading back out onto the singletrack

Let’s be honest, I’m a gear nerd. I love trying new stuff, reviewing it, and sharing my experiences with you. I remember when I started running I was always asking the question, “What gear would be good for what situation?” and what’s funny is I’m getting that question a LOT from a lot of you! Now that I’ve trained and race in all sorts of conditions and distances, I’m getting more confident in my decisions […]

Review: Salomon Sense Hydro S-LAB Set

Screen Shot 2013-06-04 at 1.37.12 AM

I have to give Salomon major credit for taking the time and R&D to come up with a system like the Hydro Set. While I don’t always use the bladder system for my hydration, these gloves make that option far more feasible. Like I mention in the video, I’d definitely recommend these for shorter distances (10k, Half Marathon) where you can get away with 8-16oz in hand without having to depend solely on aid stations. […]
